Tasmin Little (born London, 13 May 1965) is an English violinist.

She studied under Pauline Scott at the Yehudi Menuhin School and later at the Guildhall School of Music, coming to prominence as a string section finalist in the 1982 BBC Young Musician of the Year competition. Her father is George Little, the English TV actor.[1]


Music career

In 1988 Little made her professional solo debut with the Hallé Orchestra.

She has now established an international reputation, and has recorded violin concertos by Bruch, Brahms, Sibelius and others, giving some their first recordings — or second, as with Edmund Rubbra's. She has premiered works, including Stuart MacRae's violin concerto at the 2001 BBC Proms.

In addition to a flourishing career as violin soloist which has taken her to every continent of the world, Tasmin Little has further established her reputation as Artistic Director with her hugely successful “Delius Inspired” festival, which was broadcast for a week on BBC Radio 3 in July 2006. The festival, which comprised events ranging from orchestral concerts and chamber music to films and exhibitions, also reached 800 school children in an ambitious programme designed to widen interest in classical music for young people.

Concerts and tours

As a concerto player, Tasmin's performances in the 2009/10 season took her back to the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam where she gave the World Premiere of a violin concerto by Willem Jeths. She returns to the Concertgebouw twice in the 2010/11 Season to perform violin concerti by Loevendie and Prokofiev. Other performances in 2010/11 include concerts in Australia, New Zealand and Slovenia, as well as a Festival at Kings Place, London, entitled "Tasmin Little and Friends: Violin Journeys".
