This set brings together all of Tianwa Yang's critically admired recordings of Sarasate's music for violin and piano. The great Spanish virtuoso was both an inspiration to his contemporaries and a composer of characterful and vivid pieces. He specialized in dances and arrangements, in scintillating operatic fantasies and in imperishably beautiful transcriptions. Yang's flawless intonation, lyricism and virtuosity have won accolades including the German Record Critics' Annual Prize in 2014 for her Naxos recordings of Sarasate's complete works for violin, and the ECHO Klassik awards for Best Up-and -Coming Artist in 2014 and Best Instrumentalist in 2015.

"Each piece is beautifully characterized and played with great polish and confidence... Reviewing brings a lot of surprises. You can't just fall back on big names or favorite recordings. Wonderful new recordings are still made, and this is one of them." - American Record Guide on Volume 1 of the series

"Yang throws off merciless chains of double stops and finger-crippling arabesques with scintillating aplomb. She produces astonishingly clean harmonics - whether natural or forced - and high-wire acrobatics." (BBC Music Five Stars on Vol 3)

"We encounter Sarasate's spontaneity and coalescence of tenacity and timidity in these distinctly Spanish-sounding transcriptions and arrangements...Yang conveys Chopin's silky Nocturne No. 2 with an open humility and richness of sensitivity, rather than an aloof aristocracy so often heard in the playing of Chopin's nocturnes. This is a must-buy for fans of violin artistry and the music of Sarasate. The icing on the cake is the Raff. This is fabulous stuff and to top it all we have a very generous playing time at bargain price. Just buy it." (MusicWeb Recording of the Month on Vol 4)
