Tasmin Little The Naked Violin

St Johns Church, Dumfries


Thursday 12th October @ 7.30pm

St Johns Church, Dumfries

Tasmin Little has firmly established herself as one of today's leading international violinists. She has performed on every continent in some of the most prestigious venues of the world, including Carnegie Hall, Musikverein, Concertgebouw, Philharmonie Berlin, Vienna Konzerthaus, South Bank Centre, Barbican Centre and Royal Albert Hall, Lincoln Center and Suntory Hall.

Tasmin's multi-award winning and varied career encompasses international concerto and recital performances, master classes, workshops and community outreach work. Her discography and performance schedule reflect her wide-ranging repertoire and she has given numerous world premiere performances including concerti by Willem Jeths, Robin de Raaf, Stuart MacRae, Robert Saxton and Dominic Muldowney. Her newly commissioned work, Four World Seasons by Roxanna Panufnik, was premiered as a live broadcast on the BBC at the start of Music Nation weekend, leading up to the London 2012 Olympic Games. She remains one of the few violinists to perform Ligeti's challenging Violin Concerto and has performed this work at the Berlin Philharmonie, New York Carnegie Hall, Salzburg Festival, BBC Proms, Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Philadelphia Kimmel Center.

Tasmin enjoys a very active recital life that sees her performing at all the major festivals and venues throughout the United Kingdom including BBC broadcast recitals from the Wigmore Hall and Cheltenham Festival. Highlights of the coming months include returning to the Ulster Orchestra to play Szymanowski concerto no.2, bringing performances of 'The Naked Violin' project to audiences in recitals across Scotland and performing the Britten violin concerto in Porto with the Symphonic Orchestra of Porto Casa da Musica and Baldur Bronnimann, conducting.

In 2008, Tasmin launched her project, The Naked Violin, aimed at breaking down barriers to classical music by releasing a free CD for download on her website, and performing in the community where music is rarely heard. Within days of the CD release, 6,500 websites had linked to Tasmin's site and within a few months, more than half a million people had visited and downloaded. The project was filmed for television by ITV's The South Bank Show and continues in UK and has toured in America, China, New Zealand, Ireland and United Arab Emirates (Dubai).
