Notes and Editorial Reviews

Steinbacher shapes the glorious melody in the opening movement [of the First] with great tenderness and affection and 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

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