"... no self-respecting Delian can afford to be without this indispensable issue."
- Gramophone

"Five Stars ... will give great pleasure to all lovers of Delius’s music."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Editor’s Choice ... an irresistible programme throughout which Delius’s golden phrases soar aloft as if floating on warm summer breezes, captured in exemplary Chandos sound. Five Stars."
- Classic FM

"... one fantastic recording, graced by gorgeous playing and not just by Little and Watkins, but also by the BBC Orchestra under the keen stewardship of Sir Andrew Davis. All, including Chandos’s engineering and production team, are to be congratulated. Urgently recommended."
- Fanfare

These three major concertos by Frederick Delius involving solo string instruments are brought together here on the same album for the first time. The Violin Concerto, Double Concerto and Cello Concerto are performed by Sir Andrew Davis and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, along with two of the best solo artists strongly associated with British repertoire. Violinist Tasmin Little and cellist Paul Watkins join forces in the rarely performed and recorded Double Concerto, which represents Delius at his most inspired: the work is warmly evocative as well as strong and memorable. The soloists get to showcase their abilities in music that is both passionate and tranquil. This release follows an earlier, highly praised Delius album from Davis and the BBC Symphony.

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!
