"Full of spirit and stunningly played by Tamsin Waley-Cohen ... the playing from the soloists is virtuosic and the Orchestra of the Swan give light-footed support."
- The Guardian

“... sizzlingly draws attention to the preternatural gifts of invention and lithe craftsmanship that Mendelssohn possessed... the Orchestra of the Swan bring the music ear-catchingly alive ... all the witty repartee is there, as is the charm ...”
- Gramophone

Outstanding British violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen performs a fittingly prodigious work by Felix Mendelssohn on this 2013 release. The Violin Concerto in D Minor was composed when Mendelssohn was only 13 and is paired here with his Concerto for Violin, Piano and String Orchestra, on which she is joined by British pianist Huw Watkins alongside the Orchestra of the Swan conducted by David Curtis.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
