There is some astoundingly good violin playing going on here. In the First Violin Concerto's opening Nocturne, Arabella Steinbacher maintains an intensity of concentration and focused tone that fully justifies the slowish basic tempo. She's seconded every step of the way by Andris Nelsons, who wrings every drop of color from Shostakovich's darkly opalescent orchestration. The Passacaglia is similarly intense, with a climax that finds Steinbacher's tone riding effortlessly over the orchestra. She's similarly persuasive in the first two movements of the Second Violin Concerto, finding an ideal combination of phrasing and pacing in projecting the bittersweet lyricism of its central Adagio.
