Product description

Product Description

Violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen continues her series of concerto recordings on Signum with two contrasting works by American composers. Already considered by many to be a modern classic, John Adams 1993 Violin Concerto was described by the composer as having a hypermelody , in which the soloist plays longs phrases without stop for the duration of the 35 minute piece. Although composed in 1949, the first performance of Roy Harris s Violin Concerto didn t occur until 1984. Since then it has been championed for its 'luminous orchestration and exalted tone'. For this recording Tamsin Waley-Cohen is joined by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under American conductor Andrew Litton.


'This is a fabulous performance of a very fine concerto.' --Bruce Reader Classical Reviewer, 3rd October 2016

GRAMOPHONE EDITOR S CHOICE '[Tamsin Waley-Cohen s] interpretation is technically beyond reproach and musically imaginative. What makes this recording indispensible is the coupling ... Harris s Concerto is a major (re-)discovery, and Waley-Cohen outclasses Fulkerson s pioneering version in every respect. Andrew Litton and the BBC Symphony provide superb, supple support. Not to be missed.' --Andrew Farach-Colton Gramophone, December 2016
