About

A century after his birth, Dmitri Shostakovich is one of the most widely performed composers of the 20th century. He is not, however, particularly associated with the virtuoso concerto as a medium, a state of affairs due to the fact that in his two violin concertos showiness is replaced by the greatest intimacy, atmospheric tone painting by emotional substance.

With the effortless yet precise and concentrated tone that typifies all her playing, Arabella Steinbacher reveals lightning reflexes and great sensitivity as she negotiates the obstacles and explores the depths of these two concertos, both of which were dedicated to David Oistrakh. It was Oistrakh who inspired Steinbacher's highly acclaimed recording of the Khachaturian Violin Concerto (C623041A).
