Volume 2 of British Violin Sonatas, recorded at Potton Hall with Tasmin Little and Piers Lane, has finally arrived!

The atmosphere established by this original collection is best described by the violinist herself:

‘Now that the disc is complete, the shape of it feels very right and I love the combination of these works – opening with exuberance, and continuing with drama, wistful lines, folk elements, and romance. I always take into account the key structure when planning a disc of varied works, and the way that I have planned this disc gives me one of my favourite moments: the “Pastorale” by Vaughan Williams dies away in the key of E minor, after which our disc segues seamlessly into the E minor introduction to William Lloyd Webber’s piece, which in its turn blossoms into E major as the violin line makes its entrance.

‘It is a beautiful transition which I hope you will enjoy as much as I do. Both Piers and I would like to dedicate our recording of this lovely little gem by William Lloyd Webber [a premiere recording] to our great friend Jan Robinson.’
