"Little’s tone is nigh on ideal, capable of an extraordinary ethereal sweetness... Davis and Chandos support this flight with a gorgeous cushion of string sound, surpassing any other audio account that can recall... what’s not to like?"
- Limelight

"Five Stars... Little’s spacious and serene way is both beautiful and beautifully unfussy. State-of-the-art sensitivity and support come from Andrew Davis and the BBC Philharmonic and Chandos’s recorded sound presents a feast of clear orchestral detail."
- BBC Music Magazine

"(The Lark Ascending) still comes up fresh and spring-like, played as it is with immaculate poise and clarity and a sense of radiant stillness... I would recommend all doubters and sceptics to lend an attentive ear to a performance of Moeran’s fine work that offers the best possible advocacy."
- International Record Review

World renowned violinist Tasmin Little demonstrates her unique affinity for some of the best loved British composers of the 20th century in this release with Sir Andrew Davis and the BBC Philharmonic. The recital includes works by Elgar, Delius, Holst, Moeran and the title piece by Vaughan Williams, a much loved romance for violin and orchestra, long considered a pièce de resistance for Little. The three works by Elgar—all heard here in arrangements for violin and orchestra by Roger Turner—include Salut d’amour, one of the early pieces that made the composer’s name.

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!
