Tasmin Little in concert
Your last chance to see violinist Tasmin Little – a simply phenomenal musician – before she steps down from the concert platform.
Violinist Tasmin Little’s four decades on the concert stage have been nothing short of incredible. Classical Music Alive in Reading has many memories of Tasmin being part of the programme, with numerous orchestras and also on the recital platform. As she approaches her final year of concert appearances, we are delighted to welcome her one last time.
On Wednesday November 20, together with pianist, John Lenehan, Tasmin will perform works from recent CD releases – one of Clara Schumann’s three romances and Brahms’ Sonata No.3 – the concert concludes with their own beautiful collaboration, Tchaikovskiana.All in the beautiful acoustics and surroundings of The Concert Hall in Reading. Tasmin’s multi-award winning and varied career encompasses international concerto and recital performances, masterclasses, workshops and community outreach work. Tasmin’s discography and performance schedule reflect her wide-ranging repertoire and she has given numerous world premiere performances.
Tasmin is a Fellow of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, a Vice President of the Elgar Society, an Ambassador for the Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts, and for Youth Music, and has received Honorary Degrees from the Universities of Bradford, Leicester, Hertfordshire and City of London.
In 2016, she was awarded Honorary Memberhips of the Royal Academy of Music by the Academy and the University of London. Tasmin is the recipient of the Gold Badge Award for Services to Music and in April this year she won the BBC Music Magazine Personality of the Year Award.
Definitely a concert not to be missed. “One of the supremely great violinists of our time” Music-Web International
