Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, July 2014
Steinbacher plays these enchanting sores with a refined elegance, interpretative warmth and captivating, jewelled sonority reminiscent of the great Josef Suk...for playing that retains a strong sense of contact with the 20th century's golden age, Steinbacher has few serious contemporary rivals.

The young German violinist Arabella Steinbacher is already being hailed as one the truly great violinists of our times. The New York Times has noted her "balanced lyricism and fire...(and) finely polished technique and beautifully varied palette...". This performances are her first recorded attempts at the Mozart concerti, despite receiving many repeated requests to do so, and having played his works often since her youth. - Ms. Steinbacher records exclusively for PentaTone Classics.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
These are nice recordings. It is obvious that she really likes the music, and she plays mostly the way she feels it - few concessions to "period performance practice". She uses enough vibrato, and she is expressive. It is easy to like these performances. I am grateful. I have always liked her playing.
