Tasmin Little performs Bruch
Saturday 19 October 2013 7.30pm
Cadogan Hall, London
CONDUCTOR - Bramwell Tovey
Violin - Tasmin Little

BIZET L’Arlésienne Suite No.1

BRUCH Violin Concerto No.1

TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No.2, 'Little Russian'

An unmissable concert, featuring celebrated violinist Tasmin Little playing Bruch’s ravishing Violin Concerto No.1. Bruch’s most famous composition, this irresistible work showcases the violin’s capacity for soaring, singing melodies and dazzling display. Little was hailed earlier this year for her ‘careful articulation and a truly beautiful elegance of playing… Hers is a warmly human personality, and her artistry is truly refined.’

The programme also features Bizet’s first suite of music from L’Arlésienne, full of memorable tunes, and culminates in the joyous Second Symphony by Tchaikovsky. The Symphony includes three Ukrainian folk songs, which gives the Symphony its nickname – ‘Little Russia’, which was a term used to describe Ukraine at the time.
