"... this double homage to strings and English composers is engrossingly good ... Waley-Cohen's playing is memorable for the confident, earthy grit balancing its sweetness ... she's gorgeously supported by the orchestra with some lovely woodwind and brass solo turns ... ear-prickingly youthful and vibrant ..."
- Sinfini Music

"Four Stars ... her sense of line and capacity to make things happen are both beautiful and strikingly individual. In the Concerto she finds a convincing interplay between period style non-vibrato and dreamy sensuality; The Lark Ascending's opening solo searches out an extreme degree of musical space in a way that's at once daring and mesmerizing."
- BBC Music Magazine

British violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen adds to her already prodigious reputation with this programme of timeless works for strings by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Edward Elgar. Joined again the the Orchestra of the Swan under David Curtis, the centerpiece of the album is an enchanting performance of Williams’s The Lark Ascending.

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!
