RVW150 Ambassador

Tasmin Little, the illustrious violinist who is highly regarded for her interpretation of RVW’s music, is RVW150 Ambassador.

At the opening of the anniversary celebrations, Tasmin spoke about the enduring popularity of RVW’s music:

“Often thought of as the father of modern British music, his works remain a firm fixture on the concert stages of the UK, as well as abroad. But why is his music so enduringly popular, resonating with people of all ages and nationalities?  Is it perhaps because there’s an emotional honesty to his writing which audiences respond to? I remember, as a young girl, being intensely drawn to his music – the distinctly personal style, the imagination, power, beauty. His language is one which can be appreciated on so many levels.”
