Bohemia

£12.00

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.

This disc follows Tamsin’s recent critically-praised disc of Roy Harris and John Adams’ Violin Concertos with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, as well as previous discs with Huw Watkins exploring some lesser-known gems of the violin and Piano repertoire.

Praise for Tamsin’s other releases:

   “Waley-Cohen brings magnetic performances and an enthusiast’s passion to this splendid disc … [her] laser-bright tone and effortless agility drives this outstanding account” BBC Music Magazine (Harris/ Adams) *****

“Waley-Cohen produces a beautiful, so , creamy tone in the lyrical passages, and throughout the recital we’re treated to a remarkable palette of tone colours.” Gramophone (Hahn/Szymanowski)

The Strad

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

Gramophone review

Just fresh, thoughtful and committed interpretations shot through with poetry and alertness

Music Web International:

The performances are all well prepared, well integrated, well-conceived and beautifully played. Altogether a cherishable disc.
