Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
An unexpectedly effective coupling of two concertos that inhabit completely different worlds... Steinbacher certainly has the measure of both, delivering technically impeccable and beautifully shaped performances supported by fine orchestral playing...

Gramophone Magazine
The Berg is intimate, orderly, tonally sweet but never glutinous and always neatly accommodated within the orchestra's overall texture, which is beautifully (and precisely) moulded by Andris Nelsons. ... this is above all a musical reading of the score and provides a moving context for the Bach quotation that dominates the second movement.

Sunday Times
[Steinbacher's] keen, intense tone captures the anguish that lies at the heart of Berg's concerto...With Nelsons and Cologne's superb WDR orchestra, Steinbacher reaches into the heart of this serial but heart-rendingly lyrical work. Her Beethoven, too, eschews virtuoso histrionics in favour of an almost dream-like inwardness in the slow movement.
