Sonatas for Piano and Violin (2011)

Brahms

Arabella Steinbacher

 

Johannes Brahms was only 15 years old when he first attended a performance by the famous violinist, Joseph Joachim. Later on, he met Joachim personally, thanks to a Hungarian colleague, Eduard Reményi, with whom Brahms made a concert tour in 1853. After first hearing Brahms play, Joachim exclaimed: “I have never before come across so great a talent. He is years ahead of me.” The two of them became friends for life: not only did they give a great many concerts together, but for during various periods in 1853 and 1854 Brahms even took up resi- dence in Joachim’s house. Brahms was an avid reader of roman- tic books. He immersed himself in works by Jean Paul and Novalis, and copied his favourite passages into a notebook that he entitled ‘Schatzkästlein des jungen Kreislers’ (= little treasure chest of the young Kreisler), thus tipping his hat to the fictitious figure from Robert Schumann’s Davidsbund. Every so often, Joseph Joachim also contributed a short text to the notebook, often in the form of an aphorism. He signed most of his texts with the letters, or musical notes, F-A-E. This was an abbreviation for Joachim’s life motto:‘frei aber einsam’ (= free, but lonely).

Arabella Steinbacher

Violinist Arabella Steinbacher has firmly established herself as one of today’s leading violinists on the international concert scene, performing with the world’s major orchestras. The New York Times reports that she plays with “Balanced lyricism and fire - among her assets are a finely polished technique and a beautifully varied palette of timbres.” Recording exclusively for PENTATONE, Steinbacher’s career was launched in 2004 with an extraordinary and unexpected debut in Paris, when she stepped in on short notice for an ailing colleague and performed the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France under Sir Neville Marriner.
Her diverse and deep repertoire nowadays includes more than thirty concertos for violin. In addition to all of the major concertos of the Classical and Romantic periods, she also performs those of Barber, Bartók, Berg, Glazunov, Khatchaturian, Milhaud, Prokofiev, Schnittke, Shostakovich, Stravinsky, Szymanowski, Hindemith, Hartmann, and Sofia Gubaidulina’s Offertorium. Her recording honors include the Choc du mois from Le Monde de la Musique, two ECHO Klassik Awards, two German Record Critics’ Awards, and the Editor’s Choice Award from Gramophone magazine.
