Tasmin Little

Tasmin Little is an English violinist born on May 13, 1965 (Perlman was 19 years old.) She is known for her violin-music project known as “The Naked Violin.” Little studied in London with Pauline Scott at the Yehudi Menuhin School and at the Guildhall School of Music though she studied in Canada as well. Her debut came in 1988 with the Halle Orchestra. She has been concertizing around the world since then but has only recorded a small portion of the standard repertoire. Still missing from her discography are the concertos of Bach, Mozart, Paganini, Beethoven, Wieniawski, Vieuxtemps, Saint Saenz, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, and Stravinsky. Little has had the distinction of appearing at the popular BBC Proms (London) concerts fifteen times. She plays a 1757 Guadagnini and the 1708 Regent Stradivarius.
