We are delighted to open our 75th Anniversary season with a very special recital by one of Britain's best-loved soloists. Tasmin Little's "Naked Violin" project was launched in 2008 - an acclaimed ground-breaking initiative designed to show the huge range of expression that a single unadorned violin can produce and bring violin music to a wider audience. Including recordings free from her website and interaction with the live audience, it was a world-wide success. Now she brings it to Milngavie and in her warm and engaging way she introduces great violin classics by Bach and Ysaÿe, and plays brilliantly colourful pieces by Albeniz, Roxanna Panufnik and others.

[The Elgar Concerto with the RSNO] was one of the glories of the season, with Tasmin Little's playing fuelled by her unshakeable confidence and maturity - which then allowed her intoxicating blend of power, passion, poetry and drop-dead beautiful playing to conjure a magic that just let the music flow.
