Album information


Nine years after its initial release, two of the greatest concertos ever written for the violin, are presented in an attractively priced Stereo re-issue. 

Recorded in September 2014 in the magnificent Victoria Hall, Geneva, Arabella Steinbacher and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, under the baton of Charles Dutoit, join forces for this confident and energetic recording of Tchaikovsky and Mendelssoh violin concertos. Arabella Steinbacher performs with heart-felt enthusiasm on this recording.
Her interpretation, respectful of the composer’s indications on the score, produced a pure, yet fierce sound that speaks directly to the listener. 

Both the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and Arabella Steinbacher, a multiple award-winner, have an extensive Pentatone discography spanning more than a decade.
