Extractions: Send it to a friend! Since she was a student at the Guildhall School of Music in the early 1980's the violinist Tasmin Little has believed that there is an unknown, and deliberately buried, secret in the life of Frederick Delius - a secret fundamental to the development and proper appreciation of his music. It concerns a brief period in his early twenties spent in a malaria infested swamp region of northern Florida trying to establish an orange plantation for his father. Tasmin believes that while living almost alone in this remote area Delius had the most intense sexual affair of his life with one of the black girls who worked on the plantation. After he returned to England in 1886 Delius discovered that his black mistress had borne his child. Entirely dependent on his stern father and fearing social ostracism by the polite salon society whose approval he desperately needed if he was to win musical acceptance, Delius abandoned the girl and suppressed all knowledge of the baby. However a few years later, more secure in his place as a composer and no longer wholly financially dependent on his father, Delius returned to Florida to seek his former mistress and the child. He was tormented by a deep sense of loss. Frightened that he might want to remove the child and take it back to England, the girl fled and Delius never saw her again.

Extractions: BUY NOW Crotchet AmazonUK AmazonUS Superbudget Like Johannes Brahms and Frederic Chopin before him, Maurice Ravel holds the rare distinction of being a composer that left us with few if any substandard works. It would seem as though the man were incapable of producing anything save masterpieces. The two works for violin and piano presented here are shining examples of Ravels flawless craftsmanship. Perhaps no composer of his generation has a more immediately recognizable harmonic and rhythmic language than Francis Poulenc. The violin sonata is Poulencs third attempt at the genre, who admittedly uncomfortable writing for solo strings, had destroyed two earlier attempts. Dedicated to Federico Garcia Lorca and the violinist Ginette Neveu, the work not only reflects the violence of conflict (specifically the Spanish Civil War) but also the tragedy of loss. When Miss Neveu met her untimely demise in an air crash in 1949, Poulenc extensively revised the piece as a reflection of his grief.
Extractions: Adagio when he came to write his own fine slow movement ten years later. Scottish Fantasy (which she went on to record magnificently). Her playing is as magical and alluring as it was then, full of personality, warmth and humanity, and these two recordings date from fairly early on in her career. Her tone is sweet, with considerable vibrato, the start of the Adagio of the Bruch compellingly still and tonally rich. Her phrasing connects musically, drawing the ear as the music unfolds with unerring attention to shape and pace. Its good to see Jonathan Smalls fine oboe playing in the Adagio of Brahms concerto receiving due mention in the credits for it is thoroughly deserved (and so is the orchestras unnamed principal horn for his playing at various points). Vernon Handley and the RLPO are attentive accompanists, the future Mr Tasmin Little (Mike Hatch of Floating Earth) the expert balance engineer thus keeping it all nicely in the family. This is a fine disc, occupying a worthy place among the top ten recordings of both works.
Extractions: Irish News Richard Studt began playing the violin at the age of four and joined the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain while in his teens. He studied with Manoug Parikian at the Royal Academy of Music where he won the Boise-Mendelssohn Scholarship, the Marjorie Heyward Prize and the Recital Medal. He joined the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in 1968, playing for some ten years and regularly appearing as soloist in concerts, on recordings, on radio and television. In the late 1970`s, Richard Studt was Concert Master of the London Symphony Orchestra and appeared as a guest of Andre Previn in his television series `Previn and Friends`. He directed the London Virtuosi and the Concertante of London as well as his own ensemble, the Tate Music Group of London with whom he recorded five Vivaldi Concerti, including two newly discovered important works. Richard first studied conducting with Maurice Handford, although Sir Simon Rattle (with whom he also studied) was the main source of encouragement for his first professional engagements some twenty years ago. Subsequently, he attended some of the courses of the legendary Romanian conductor, Sergiu Celibidache.In 1987 Richard was appointed Director and Associate Conductor of the Bournemouth Sinfonietta, working closely with many well-known artists including Tamas Vasary, John Williams, Alfred Brendel, Tasmin Little, Michaela Petri, Julian Lloyd-Webber, Peter Donahoe, Leonidas Kavakos and he took the orchestra to Istanbul, Ankara and Romania.
