Arabella Steinbacher first came to public attention in 2004 when, at short notice, she substituted for an ailing Kyung Wha Chung to perform the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France under Sir Neville Marriner.
Steinbacher’s continued success since is due, in large part, to her diverse and deep repertoire, which includes more than 40 violin concertos extending from the classical period to the music of twentieth-century composers such as Barber, Berg, Prokofiev, and Stravinsky.
