"Det vilar en höstlig Londonatmosfär över dessa ensatsiga konserter, där idyllikern Frederick Delius sökte sin väg in i de större formerna. Med kännedom om tonsättarens karaktär är det inte förvånande att framställningen mindre bygger på en kamp mellan soloinstrument och orkester än på ett samspel där individen avtecknar sig mjukt mot kollektivet. I fel händer kan verken bli spänningslösa eller tvärtom pressat dramatiserade; här får de i stället ett passande vemod, som inte är så mycket nostalgiskt som präglat av den sorgsenhet som uppstår då kärleken ännu glöder men är på väg att falna. Mycket fint framfört, i synnerhet dubbelkonserten."
(Dagens Nyheter)

Tasmin Little, violin; Paul Watkins, cello.
BBC Symphony Orchestra / Sir Andrew Davis.

These three major concertos by Frederick Delius involving solos string instruments are here brought together on the same disc for the first time. The Violin Concerto, Double Concerto, and Cello Concerto are performed by exclusive Chandos artists strongly associated with British repertoire.

Sir Andrew Davis and the BBC Symphony Orchestra have already released one Delius disc this year (CHSA 5088 - Appalachia and The Song of the High Hills), of which International Record Review (IRR) said: 'I am absolutely certain that this is the greatest performance and recording of Delius' Appalachia which has ever been put on disc...

it would be hard if not impossible to imagine a more magnificent performance of this masterpiece... the playing is unfailingly beautiful and infused with sensitivity, brilliance of technique and vividness of colour'.

Tasmin Little, who won the Critics' Choice Award at this year's Classic BRIT Awards, is the soloist in the Violin Concerto. This is not a virtuosic showpiece in the ordinary sense; instead the solo part stays harmonically connected with the orchestra throughout; in fact, it seems to grow out of its textures. The work is composed in a single long span, divided into three clear sections in which different moods succeed one another, sometimes passionately spontaneous, sometimes dreamlike, sometimes fiery.

Paul Watkins is the soloist in the Cello Concerto, which Delius regarded as his personal favourite among his concertos. It was the last work that he was able to complete in his own hand before experiencing the onset of the devastating effects of syphilis: paralysis and blindness.

Tasmin Little and Paul Watkins join forces in the rarely performed and recorded Double Concerto, which represents Delius at his most inspired: the work is warmly evocative as well as strong and memorable. The soloists get to showcase their abilities in music that is both passionate and tranquil.
