Taking a short break from historic concerts this week and heading over to Frankfurt for a concert by the Frankfurt Radio Symphony conducted by Andres Orozco Estrada and featuring the brilliant German-Japanese violinist, Arabella Steinbacher, recorded last year.

It’s a widely balanced concert, featuring music by Haydn, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Eugène Ysaye and a premier by Friederich Cerha. It was recorded last February 7th at the Frankfurt Opera and relayed by Radio France Musique.

Since it’s over 90 minutes, it’s on two players – so here’s what’s what:

A wonderful concert. Steinbacher handily proves why she is one of the bright stars on the musical horizon today.
