BIOGRAPHY

During a flourishing career as a soloist which has taken her to every continent in the world, Tasmin Little has performed with many of the world’s great orchestras, including among others the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Royal Philharmonic and London Symphony, and has worked with conductors including Masur, Ashkenazy, Järvi, Slatkin, Rostropovich, Mackerras, Rozhdestvensky and Menuhin. In 2006 she made her fourteenth appearance at the BBC Proms. She continues to champion seldom-performed repertoire, including Ligeti’s challenging Violin Concerto which brought her unanimous critical acclaim during her 2003 tour to Berlin, Salzburg, New York and Philadelphia with the Berlin Philharmonic and Sir Simon Rattle.

Tasmin Little has further established her reputation as an artistic director with her hugely successful ‘Delius Inspired’ Festival, broadcast on Radio 3 in 2006. The festival comprised concerts, films and exhibitions, and included an ambitious project of outreach work with school children designed to widen interest in classical music in young people. She also directs and performs with orchestras such as Norwegian Chamber, Britten Sinfonia and the Royal Philharmonic, and plays a 1757 Guadagnini violin.
