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

"Four Stars. Steinbacher shapes the glorious melody in the opening movement (of the First) with great tenderness and affection ... throughout the work there is a real sense of her interaction with conductor Vasily Petrenko and the highly responsive Russian National Orchestra."
- BBC Music Magazine

Violinist Arabella Steinbacher continues to release one dazzling performance after another; on this 2012 album she takes on both of Prokofiev's violin concertos, accompanied by Vasily Petrenko and the Russian National Orchestra, all recorded in typically superb PentaTone sound. Steinbacher completes the programme on her own, with the Sonata for Violin Solo.

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!
