BBC Music Magazine reviews Richard Strauss's Violin Concerto



"Arabella Steinbacher plays it with great conviction and receives powerful support from Lawrence Foster and the WDR Symphony Orchestra."

 

BBC Music Magazine praises our release of "Richard Strauss - Violin Concerto / Miniatures" with Arabella Steinbacher and the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, conducted by Lawrence Foster! Read a glimpse of the review below!

 

Steinbacher negotiates all the technical hurdles of the first movement and fleet-footed passage work in the Finale with tremendous aplomb, and is particularly beguiling in the slow movement, projecting great warmth of tone that is also very much to the fore in the attractive Romanze, originally conceived for solo cello and orchestra.The rest of this luxuriantly recorded disc is filled out with idiomatic transcriptions.
