Tamsin Waley Cohen is joined by pianist Huw Watkins for a new disc exploring folk- inspired Bohemia from before the First World War – featuring works by Antonin Dvořák, Josef Suk and Leoš Janáček.
Waley-Cohen captures the score’s spirit of infectious bonhomie to perfection… this gifted duo refreshingly exchanges the percussive tendency and angular introspection of some recent accounts for a spiritually intense espressivo reminiscent of Yehudi Menuhin in his prime – The Strad
Just fresh, thoughtful and committed interpretations shot through with poetry and alertness – Gramophone
The performances are all well prepared, well integrated, well-conceived and beautifully played. Altogether a cherishable disc – MusicWeb International
