Notes & Reviews:

In this release, playing works by Vaughan Williams, Moeran, Delius and Holst, Tasmin Little once again demonstrates her unique connection with some of the best loved British composers of the 20th century. The disc features the work often considered Little's piece de resistance, Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2014
Little plays [Song of the Night] with verve and panache but her most wide-ranging interpretation is reserved for the most substantial work on this disc, Moeran's magnificent and entirely personal Violin Concerto...evoked with conviction by Little's flair and clarity...A sumptuous offering all round!

BBC Music Magazine, February 2014
Little's stellar playing [is] brimming with gorgeous and glitz-free tone, plus a lovely range of light and shade...Little's spacious and serene way with The Lark Ascending is both beautiful, and beautifully unfussy. State-of-the-art sensitivity and support come from Andrew Davis and the BBC Philharmonic.

James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, May 2014
Little brings her customary charm and delicacy to these Elgarian bonbons, here arranged for violin and orchestra and accompanied by Sir Andrew Davis and the BBC Philharmonic.
