Vaughan Williams: The lark ascending; Elgar: Serenade for strings

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'—adds to her already prodigious reputation with a new disc of timeless works for strings by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Edward Elgar. Joined by the Orchestra of the Swan under David Curtis, the culmination of the programme is an enchanting performance of Vaughan Williams’ The lark ascending.
