"The balance in St George’s is very good and the concept worthwhile. The performances are sensitive, characterful and present a strong point of view. I enjoyed them very much ..."
- MusicWeb International

"... superbly played by Huw Watkins ... Waley-Cohen plays with an obvious love of the music, most sympathetically accompanied by Watkins. Fine sound, with an excellent sense of presence and clean separation."
- Gramophone

Rising star violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen is joined by eminent pianist and composer Huw Watkins in a diverse programme of works that were all influenced in different ways by the era in which they were composed. These four contrasting works were conceived at four very different points in the composers' lives, as the Great War drew to a close, but none of them specifically attempts to conjure up images of the conflict nor act as any kind of memorial to its victims. Rather, these works were all conceived as absolute music; in the case of the Elgar and Debussy sonatas they are imbued with a melancholy regret that may have been a reflection of those tragic four years.

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!
