ArtistsTamsin Waley-Cohen (violin)
Huw Watkins (piano)
Rising-star violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen is joined by the eminent pianist-composer Huw Watkins in a diverse programme of works that were all influenced in different ways by the era in which they were composed. The works were conceived at four very different points in the composerís lives: Debussy, at the end of his life; Respighi in the first flush of fame; Elgar, although not old, enjoying his last creative period; and Sibelius in his prime, composing prolifically.
These four contrasting works were all composed as the Great War drew to a close, but none of them specifically attempts to conjure up images of the conflict, nor act as any kind of programmatic memorial to its victims. Rather, these works are all conceived as absolute music, albeit, in the case of the Elgar and Debussy sonatas, imbued with a melancholy regret that may have been a reflection of those tragic four years.
