Notes & Reviews:

Britain's Tasmin Little performs the little-known violin sonatas by Richard Strauss and Ottorino Respighi in her latest recital disc for Chandos. Also included are three of Respighi's Six Pieces for violin and piano. Australian pianist Piers Laine, five times soloist at the BBC Proms in London's Royal Albert Hall, will accompany.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2013
Tasmin Little and Piers Lane turn in one of the most satisfying performances [of the Strauss Sonata] I've heard. Their judicious choice of tempos allows the music to breathe naturally. They also display an intense sympathy with Strauss's melodic style, especially in their delicate and atmospheric account of the slow movement...[the extracts from Sei Pezzi] make for an enjoyable filler.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2013
Both sonatas are played here with complete understanding and spontaneity, and bring moments of true musical virtuosity. Piers Lane is a first-class pianist and forms a fine partnership with Tamsin Little, whose tone is caught with great beauty, for the Chandos recording is completely real and naturally balanced.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Tasmin Little's performance is one of the best that I have heard. The very beginning of I tells you that Little has analyzed the structure of the phrase. I find that this helps make better sense of the music. The program concludes with a very idiomatic performance of three of the Six Pieces.
