The Guardian Media reports that Tasmin Little will be offering her next recording as a free download: Top violinist’s free digital download targets classical elitism.
Little also hopes her recording, The Naked Violin, will be educative as well as enjoyable, and has recorded spoken introductions to the pieces to give technical and musical insights. It will consist of three very different unaccompanied works: Bach’s mesmerising Partita No 3 in E Major; a Polish folk music-inspired piece from 1984 by the British composer Paul Patterson, Luslawice Variations; and Sonata No 3 “Ballade” written in 1924 by the Belgian violinist and composer Eugène Ysaÿe.
