Tasmin Little

Biography

Born: May 13, 1965; London, England  
Tasmin Little is a versatile and appealing English violinist who has left few musical stones unturned in her busy career. As a concerto soloist, a recitalist, a chamber musician, and even as a scholar and television producer, she has proved that her interests know few boundaries, and, especially in England, she has become somewhat of a celebrity.

Little studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Guildhall School of Music, where she was
Read more a gold medal winner. She later studied privately in Toronto with Lorand Fenyves. 1988 marked two important debuts: a recital at London's Purcell Room with the pianist Piers Lane (who has remained a frequent chamber music partner), and her solo debut with the Hallé Orchestra. During the 1990s, Little built a solid international reputation, often working with Kurt Masur, Simon Rattle, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Andrew Davis, and other renowned conductors, and presenting unusually personable recitals in which she engages directly with the audience in discussion of the music.

During the same period, Little began a prodigious recording career, appearing on excellent issues from EMI, Chandos, Decca, Virgin, and Hyperion. The real breadth of her repertory comes into focus when examining her discography, which includes a range of concertos (Brahms, Bruch, Delius, Dvorák, Lalo, Sibelius, Walton, and others); chamber works by Debussy, Poulenc, and Ravel; and a variety of miniatures. She has been particularly associated with the music of Frederick Delius, about whom she produced a television documentary (BBC2's The Works). She was awarded the Diapason d'Or for her recording of Delius' sonatas, and the Delius Society published her scholarly paper on the composer's Violin Concerto. Read less
