Outstanding 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" – performs a fittingly prodigious work by Felix Mendelssohn.

The Violin Concerto in D minor was composed when Mendelssohn was just 13, and has remained popular with audiences the world over since its rediscovery in the middle of the 20th century by Yehudi Menuhin. The work is paired on this disc with Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Violin & Piano, where Waley-Cohen is joined by British pianist Huw Watkins, all alongside the enthusiastic accompaniment of the Orchestra of the Swan under David Curtis.

 "...Strongly recommended..."

Robert Maxham - Fanfare - March/April 2014


"...the Orchestra of the Swan bring the music  ear-cathingly alive, with string lines mellifluously shaped, accents crisp, the dynamic spectrum purposefully explored. Waley-Cohen and Huw Watkins take their cue from the orchestra in giving an exuberant performance of the Piano and Violin Concerto. You’d never guess that it was tricky stuff to coordinate: all witty repartee is there, as is the charm, the brilliance, the drama and the infectious sense of fun."

Geoffrey Norris - Gramophone magazine - January 2013
