Tasmin Little has firmly established herself as one of today’s leading international violinists; she has performed on every continent in some of the most prestigious venues of the world, in a career spanning more than thirty years.

Imagine our delight when Tasmin told us she had so enjoyed her Festival concert last year, she would like to return to Leamington with Andrey Gugnin and play for us again before she hangs up her concert gowns for good in the summer.

With a programme featuring two of Beethoven’s finest violin sonatas, this will be one of the last chances to hear Tasmin play in the Midlands and is certainly an opportunity not to be missed!

Tickets: £25 and £20 reserved central block, £15 unreserved sides.
£1 Student Standby

There can be no finer beginning to the thirtieth Festival than a concert from Tasmin Little, and we look forward to welcoming Andrey Gugnin to Leamington for the first time. Tasmin has for years delighted audiences in the area, playing at Charlecote Park, in Leamington, Leamington Hastings, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Arts Centre and Warwick town. A pupil of Yehudi Menuhin, she has championed Delius and, more recently, Szymanowski and includes both of them in the wide-ranging programme that opens the Festival. Awarded the OBE in 2012 and with appearances all over the world, she can, ”justly be regarded as Britain’s finest violinist.” (The Independent). She has performed with Andrey Gugnin in Australia and throughout the UK, and we have a solo recital from Andrey to look forward to as our Monday lunchtime concert.

Tickets: £24 and £19 reserved, £14 unreserved sides.
