Caesar Franck, Richard Strauss (2014)

Franck, Strauss

Arabella Steinbacher

 

On 5 January 1875, the new opera house designed by Charles Garnier was inaugurated in Paris: an important event in a city so devoted to opera and ballet. In the shortest of times, the new Palais Garnier became the musical epicentre of the French capital. This is not to say that instrumental music was being neglected: since 1828, François Habeneck had been organising the concerts of the Société des concerts du Conservatoire, at which, among other works, the symphonies of Beethoven had been introduced to the French public. And from 1861 onward, Jules Pasdeloup had been organising the Concerts populaires of the Association des concerts Pasdeloup. In contrast, chamber music enjoyed a somewhat lower status in French musical life, and was, for many, synonymous with light salon music, this despite the best efforts of such institutions as the Société des Derniers Quatuors de Beethoven and the Séances populaires de musique de chambre.

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.
