Patricia Kopatchinskaja with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra – Schubert: Death and the Maiden

“This is Schubert’s Death and the Maiden as you’ve never heard before. Yes, many have tried creating orchestral adaptations of this famous string quartet, but, in the past, the results have been more or less “muddy”, losing the intimacy of the original quartet. Audiences in North America might not know it, but those in Europe (and Minnesota) have quickly discovered that Patricia Kopatchinskaja is near the top of any responsible conversation of who is the world’s greatest living violinist. Here, Kopatchinskaja’s new arrangement is brilliant, with her solos exquisitely captured in Alpha’s new recording with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.” – Daniel Rosenberg, Huffington Post
