Info for Vaughan Williams: The Lark Ascending - Violin Concerto in D minor - Elgar: Introduction and Allegro - Serenade for Strings
British-violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen, described by the late Ruggiero Ricci following a masterclass as the “most exceptionally gifted young violinist I have ever encountered”, adds to her already prodigious reputation with a new disc of timeless works for strings by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Edward Elgar. Joined again the the Orchestra of the Swan under David Curtis, the centre-piece of the programme is an enchanting performance of Vaughan Williams’ 'The Lark Ascending'.
"By today's turbo-charged standards the firepower of Waley-Cohen's playing is not huge, and the range of light and shade a little contained; but her sense of line and capacity to make things happen are both beautiful and strikingly individual." (BBC Music Magazine)
"This performance [of the Concerto] is very convincing...And there are some fine imaginative touches; I was particularly taken with Tamsin Waley-Cohen's lovely flautando tone as the finale quietly drifts away...All in all, it's a most attractive programme, performed with real sympathy and understanding." (Gramophone Magazine)
"Here is a fine performance indeed…forthright and exciting…Waley-Cohen’s reading is deeply felt and has been thought through afresh…the results are sumptuous." (International Record Review)
