"Admirers of this gifted young artist will need no second bidding to acquire this recording ... she plays all three works with love and affection ..."
- International Record Review

"Five Stars ... Steinbacher’s rich and eloquent tone never falters ... there is no doubting (her) refulgent sound or the flair of her delivery. Excellent sound quality ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... (on Poème) Steinbacher gives an impassioned performance, investing the double stops of the first violin solo with an aching, even lachrymose, sadness ... the PentaTone recording presents a robust, up-front sound picture ..."
- Audiophile Audition

Star violinist Arabella Steinbacher, the Gulbenkian Orchestra and conductor Lawrence Foster present these lyrical Romantic works which include a lush arrangement of Max Bruch’s popular yet surprising Violin Concerto No. 1, followed by two exquisite pieces: Chausson’s Poème and an acclaimed interpretation of Korngold’s Violin Concerto in D Major. The Korngold most vividly demonstrates that Steinbacher’s feeling for the timeless melodies runs as deep as her technical command is great.

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!
