"For the unforced but forceful command and élan of Steinbacher’s performances and for the liveliness of the recorded sound ... an urgent recommendation."
- Fanfare

"Five Stars. There's a strongly lyrical impulse in Steinbacher's playing which is suited to the intimate character of these sonatas ... Kulek is an admirable partner and projects both the richness and clarity of texture in Brahms's writing through a carefully controlled use of the pedal ... PentaTone's recording has real presence ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Four Stars ... Steinbacher and Kulek approach these timeless scores with a velvet-gloved tenderness and affection ... Steinbacher produces a sensuous sound of beguiling purity that sends Brahms's rich cantabile lines soaring aloft and receives wonderfully sympathetic support from Kulek ... in terms of sheer beauty of sound Steinbacher and Kulek have no rivals."
- Classic FM

This 2011 recording of Brahms's complete violin concertos marks the second collaboration between violinist Arabella Steinbacher and pianist Robert Kulek; they first teamed up on record in 2008 and reunited in 2014 for a third album of Romantic sonatas. On this release their individual virtuosity is on display, the combination blending magically and captured in superb audio quality.

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!
