This release features arguably the two greatest concertos ever written for the violin: performed by one of the most brilliant violinists of her generation, together with one of the finest orchestras, and under the baton of one of the world’s foremost conductors. This recording of the Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn violin concertos bears witness to the eminence of the collaboration between violinist Arabella Steinbacher, famed conductor Charles Dutoit and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and the result thereof. German violinist Arabella Steinbacher has firmly established herself as one of today's leading international violinists, with the New York Times reporting that she plays with, “Balanced lyricism and fire - among her assets are a finely polished technique and a beautifully varied palette of timbres.” After her debut with the CSO, the Chicago Tribune reported, “From her magical entry over hushed orchestral strings to the biting swagger she brought to the dancing finale, it was evident that her feeling for this music runs as deep as her technical command.”
