The violin concertos by Benjamin Britten and Paul Hindemith are among the most famous and, above all, the best violin concertos of the 20th century. From the very first day they were among the standards in the programs of the great violin virtuosos. To this day, they are a touchstone for every violin soloist. And of course for every soloist. Arabella Steinbacher is opening a new phase of her outstanding career with this challenging program. With these interpretations, she confronts herself with the comparison to the great grandees of the past and present. Because who wouldn’t immediately have David Oistrakh in mind when it comes to Hindemith’s violin concerto or Mark Lubotsky for Britten’s contribution to the genre? However, Arabella Steinbacher is in no way inferior to these legendary violinists of the mono era with her latest interpretation. Instead of attacking timeless references, she goes her own way and, with her famously lyrical violin tone, reveals a side of these concerts that is still relatively poorly illuminated. Steinbacher lends Paul Hindemith’s 1939 masterpiece of musical modernism an unusually bucolic note with her outstanding phrasing, while she exposes the most wonderful melodies in Britten’s concerto. With the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin under the direction of its new chief conductor Vladimir Jurowski, she is supported by congenial musical partners who have already proven many times that they are among the most important specialists for music of the 20th century.
