Notes and Editorial Reviews

The indefatigable duo of Tasmin Little and Piers Lane returns with a unique recorded programme at the centre of which stand the violin sonatas of Szymanowski and Franck. Their joined expert musicianship reveals the intimacy and magic of these passionate, late-romantic works. The album encompasses the folk-like yet technically demanding Romance, Violin Sonata, and Notturno e Tarantella by Szymanowski, here more inspired by the German and French romantic tradition than by his native Polish one, as well as Franck's highly original Violin Sonata and Faure's Romance. It follows a much-lauded set of Schubert's complete works for violin and piano, and also marks the eightieth anniversary of Saymanowski's death. Tasmin Little will continue her Read more tribute to the composer with a concerto album this autumn and with a series of concerts of his music, which will take her around the world. Read less
