This release arguably features 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 under the baton of one of the world’s foremost conductors. After waiting for a long time to record these concertos with the perfect collaborators, Arabella Steinbacher didn’t waste any chance to shine with heartfelt enthusiasm and bravura. She produces such a pure, yet fierce sound that it allows the music to speak in an immediate, translucent way. Recorded in September 2014 in the magnificent Victoria Hall in Geneva, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande seems totally at home with the repertoires and performs with great confidence led by Charles Dutoit, who is vivid, rhythmic and clear in his direction.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
