Violin Concerto in D minor / Concerto for Piano, Violin & Strings in D minor

Outstanding British-violinist Tamsin-Waley Cohen - described by the late Ruggiero Ricci following a masterclass as the "most exceptionally gifted young violinist I have ever encountered" - performs a fittingly prodigious work by Felix Mendelssohn.
The Violin Concerto in D minor was composed when Mendelssohn was just 13, and has remained popular with audiences the world over since its 'rediscovery' in the middle of the 20th century by Yehudi Menuhin. The work is paired on this disc with Mendelssohn's Concerto for Violin and Piano, where Waley-Cohen is joined by British pianist Huw Watkins, all alongside the enthusiastic accompaniment of the Orchestra of the Swan under David Curtis.
