OUT NOW | Violinist Tasmin Little’s New CD: ‘Schumann, Smyth & Beach’ [LISTEN]

Chandos Records has announced the release of violinist Tasmin Little's new album: 'Tasmin Little plays Clara Schumann, Dame Ethel Smyth & Amy Beach'


Chandos Records has this month announced the release of English violinist Tasmin Little‘s new album: Tasmin Little plays Clara Schumann, Dame Ethel Smyth & Amy Beach.

Recorded with pianist John Lenehan, the disc features Amy Marcy Cheney Beach‘s Violin Sonata in A Minor, Romance and Invocation, Clara Schumann‘s 3 Romances for Violin & Piano – plus Dame Ethel Smyth‘s Violin Sonata in A Minor Op. 7.

“I really wanted to celebrate these three amazingly strong women, who struggled with many personal difficulties and the constraints of sexism prevalent at the time … and whose music deserves to be better known …” Tasmin has told The Violin Channel.

“Each of their styles is unique and sincere, as well as completely accessible to a first time listener … I hope that listeners will enjoy the music for its glorious harmonies and beautiful textures,” she has said.
