Tasmin Little returns with a line-up of three women composers whose lives share some features but also significant differences that illustrate the complex lives of female musicians. Clara Schumann, Dame Ethel Smyth, and Amy Beach all came from families that encouraged their musical interests but balked, in varying degrees, at professional training and engagement. All three composers draw on the influence of Robert Schumann and Brahms; Beach and Smyth, in particular, were fond of metrical and motivic manipulation. Tasmin Little plays this music, so close to her heart, with her usual warmth and dexterity. The manuscript of Clara Schumann’s final chamber work, Three Romances, declares it ‘for piano and violin’, an ordering reflected in the relative complexity of the parts, the florid passagework here played beautifully by Little’s long-term collaborator, John Lenehan. © Chandos

Hi-Res Booklet
This Brahms album with the internationally acclaimed duo Tasmin Little and Piers Lane will stand as a landmark in their already highly praised discography of romantic chamber music repertoire. Standing amongst the summits of the genre, the three violin sonatas by Brahms, his only ever published ones, are a pure demonstration of radiant effusiveness and romanticism in that they call for great virtuosity as well as empathy from both instruments equally. Although written twenty-five years later, they have their origin in 1853 when Brahms made the acquaintance of the Schumanns and, above all, of the great violinist Joseph Joachim, who would remain one of his closest and most musically influential friends. From the profoundly lyrical Op. 78 and Op. 100 to the more pianistic Op. 108, this recording reveals Brahms at his most intense, poetic, and melodic. Faultless support is delivered by a duo that has now established itself as a major force in romantic repertoire. © Chandos

Booklet
Of Ludwig van Beethoven's ten sonatas for piano and violin, nine were composed early in his career, between 1797 and 1803, while the final sonata was written in 1812, so most of the cycle reflects his Classical period, with the last two sonatas, the Sonata in A major, Op. 47, "Kreutzer," and the Sonata in G major, Op. 96, bookending his "heroic" phase. To the extent that violinist Tasmin Little and pianist Martin Roscoe are equal partners who give these works a balanced approach, the performances in this 2016 Chandos box set reflect modern practice, rather than period style, where the piano would have been treated as dominant and the violin relegated to a secondary role. The sound is modern, too, with no attempt at original instrumentation, so most listeners will find this three-disc package to be rather conventional, accessible, and uncontroversial. That said, the playing is energetic and powerfully expressive, and both musicians have a clear concept of Beethoven's development, even within the narrow confines of the sonatas' time frame. The early sonatas are played with elegance and warmth, as well as considerable wit, while the more turbulent "Kreutzer" Sonata is delivered with Romantic fire and plenty of excitement, bringing a dramatic conclusion to the set. Chandos' all-digital recording is immaculate, and Little and Roscoe have a close-up presence that fully engages the listener. © TiVo
