Hahn & Szymanowski


Tamsin Waley-Cohen and Huw Watkins continue their duo partnership with a new recording of works by two trailblazing composers from France and Poland respectively – Reynaldo Hahn and Karol Szymanowski.

Waley-Cohen’s playing is radiant and soaring, and Watkins’s pianism a model as always of sensitivity – The Sunday Times

An intelligent recital disk…all played with verve and style – The Guardian

It is the sheer melting beauty in the opening pages of the final movement that makes Hahn’s sonata so affecting, especially with Waley-Cohen’s hushed tone… an enjoyable recital – BBC Music Magazine

Tamsin Waley-Cohen produces a beautiful, soft, creamy tone in the lyrical passages, and throughout the recital we’re treated to a remarkable palette of tone colours. Huw Watkins is able to match this range most effectively – Gramophone

[Waley-Cohen] has a potent rhetorical style, moving neatly from dramatic flourishes and cadenzas into gentle lyricism… a fine performance – The Strad
