More Info:

Following the success of her "head-turning debut" with Orchid Classics in 2022, dynamic young violinist Coco Tomita returns with her new album "Echoes", reuniting with pianist Simon Callaghan in a reflective and intimate exploration of late 19th and 20th century repertoire. Coco first gained widespread recognition as winner of the 2020 BBC Young Musician Strings Category, an event which led to the recording of her debut album, "Origins", which garnered huge critical acclaim and was selected as one of Apple Music's Albums of the Month. She was named as 'One to watch' by Gramophone Magazine and 'Young Classical Star' by Classic FM, while elsewhere her rendition of Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" rapidly amassed over 2 million streams as part of Apple Music's Classical Christmas campaign in December 2022.With works from Ligeti, Janacek, Prokofiev and Debussy, this new release from Coco Tomita and Simon Callaghan exhibits the range and depth the duo are increasingly recognised for, while Tomita's revisiting of the music of Georges Enescu, and a duet of the traditional Irish song "Danny Boy" with younger sister Yume, round off a comprehensive and multifaceted collection.
