The Elgar Society welcomes Tasmin Little as its newest Vice-President

The Elgar Society is proud to announce that violinist Tasmin Little has become its latest Vice-President.

Ms Little’s commitment to English music in general and Elgar’s music in particular has delighted audiences both in the UK and worldwide and has helped to introduce it to new audiences both here and abroad. Her new recording of Elgar’s Violin Concerto together with Sir Colin Davis and the Royal NationalScottish Orchestra has gained much critical acclaim and was the Critics’ Choice Award at the 2011 Classic Brit awards.

On being made Vice-President, Ms Little said,“I am delighted and honoured to have been appointed Vice President of the Elgar Society.  Elgar has occupied an exceptionally special place in my heart and his music is a constant source of inspiration.  I have given over 70 performances of his searingly beautiful Violin Concerto, 60 performances of his Violin Sonata, I have recorded both works and given many performances of his delightful bonbons, such as Salut d’Amour.   I am greatly looking forward to being a part of this distinguished Society and to continuing to celebrate and perform his widely admired output of compositions.”
