Edith Peinemann’s early life and training on the violin followed an unremarkable path: she (like so many others) was taught initially by her father and went on to a relatively low-key conservatory education (with Heinz Stanske, then Max Rostal at London’s Guildhall School). Since winning the ARD Competition in 1956 she has performed with dozens of orchestras and renowned conductors and toured worldwide, also appearing frequently at major music festivals. Certain things do mark her out, however. In terms of recognition, she is one of an elite group of violinists to have been honoured by the award of the coveted Plaquette Eugène Ysaÿe (David Oistrakh, Kogan and Grumiaux being the only other previous recipients); as for her playing, it is her utter commitment in performance and the resulting depth and strength of sound that make her a great violinist, particularly in big post-Romantic and twentieth-century repertoire.
…..Peinemann’s tone is characteristically generous, with a very significant width of vibrato, but also some portamenti. Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto in D from 1983 is not dissimilar. This, too, is powerful and well-articulated, with effective accents in the lower half of the bow giving the work a purpose and direction that is consistently forceful. She had first played this work with Günter Wand at his 1963 début with the NDR broadcasting corporation in Hamburg, gaining critical admiration for her technique in both fingering and bowing. Similar traits are to be found again in Dvořák’s Concerto (of which Joachim disapproved because of its departures from classical form); this work is often rendered in a disappointingly disparate or long-winded manner, but Peinemann, ably backed by the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra in 1965, produces a beautifully balanced performance with a well-judged mixture of gravitas and delicacy.
Edith Peinemann’s performances testify to an exceptionally strong-minded talent and, dare one say, a refreshingly assertive female sound on the violin-a view first articulated by conductor William Steinberg, who famously referred to her as ‘Milstein in skirts’! © Naxos Rights International Ltd. – David Milsom
