First broadcast:

In a recital from St Mary's Church at Hay-on-Wye, violinist Tasmin Little and accompanist John Lenehan perform two contrasting works. Elgar's Violin Sonata was composed towards the end of World War One, and was written at a time when Elgar was enjoying country pursuits at his summer cottage Brinkwells. Strauss's Violin Sonata was written when the composer was only twenty-four, and is a youthful work full of freshness and virtuosity.
