Extractions: February 2002 TASMIN LITTLE VISITS MUSIC CENTRE The Tasmin Little Music Centre received a special visitor recently - the international violinist after whom it was named. Left to right: Tasmin Little with student Yannick Marchegay. Tasmin Little is one of the world's leading classical violinists and is an acknowledged interpreter of the music of Delius, who came from Bradford. The centre was named after Tasmin three years ago, when she gave a fundraising concert. She plays a 1757 Guadagnini, and has worked with many of the world's most distinguished musicians and conductors, including Sir Yehudi Menuhin, Vladimir Ashkenazy and Yan Pascal Tortelier. Since her debut with the Hallé Orchestra in 1988, she has performed as a soloist with many internationally renowned orchestras. During the visit, Tasmin was accompanied by her family, including her father, the actor George Little. Tasmin said: "I have heard about great things being achieved at the Centre. This visit provided an opportunity to catch up and also to meet the University's Fellow in Music Jim Pywell. I have a lot of links with Bradford and it is great to be back." Fellow in Music, Jim Pywell, said: "We were thrilled that Tasmin took time out of her busy diary to come to see us."

This season sees photographs of pre-September 11th New York by Trevor Griffiths, with music by American composer George Gershwin. We also celebrate a strong European connection with the Hybrida International print-making exhibition, and music from French and Czech composers including Olivier Messiaen and Anton Dvorák. Please note later start time of 1.15pm Conductor Mark Haydn Robinson Free We present music inspired by America and feature the talented Bradford-born pianist Andrew Bedford in Gershwins inimitable Rhapsody in Blue along with movements from Dvoráks most popular work New World Symphony. Composed in 1893, the symphony explores the folklore of African Americans and American Indians, though it is firmly rooted in Dvoráks Bohemian homeland. Europa Piano Trio with Colin Blamey clarinet Olivier Messiaen - Quartet for the End of Time Olivier Messiaens Quartet for the End of Time was famously composed whilst he was a prisoner of war in January 1941 and performed by the composer and three fellow inmates. This iconic work is taken as an affirmation of faith and hope against all odds. The score is prefaced with a biblical quotation from St John Time will be no more or There will be no more waiting: yearning for the freedom of eternity against the confines of time.

Extractions: Science and the Stradivarius Is there really a lost secret that sets Stradivarius violins apart from the best instruments made today? After more than a hundred years of vigorous debate, this question remains highly contentious, provoking strongly held but divergent views among players, violin makers and scientists alike. All of the greatest violinists of modern times certainly believe it to be true, and invariably perform on violins by Stradivari or Guarneri in preference to modern instruments. Violins by the great Italian makers are, of course, beautiful works of art in their own right, and are coveted by collectors as well as players. Particularly outstanding violins have reputedly changed hands for over a million pounds. In contrast, fine modern instruments typically cost about £10 000, while factory-made violins for beginners can be bought for under £100. Do such prices really reflect such large differences in quality?

Extractions: SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER MUSIC CRITIC Except for Brahms, the Seattle Chamber Music Festival concentrated on the early 20th century Friday night at Lakeside School. And what good and interesting works they were, and superbly performed. MUSIC REVIEW SEATTLE CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL WHEN: Through Friday night TICKETS: $29-$38, with student discounts; 206-283-8808 or www.seattlechambermusic.org. The evening, yet again with a capacity audience, began with the rarely heard Shostakovich Piano Trio in C Minor, marking its festival premiere. It is an early piece of the Russian composer, written when he was a piano and composition student at the Petrograd (now St. Petersburg) Conservatory. That he was precocious is obvious in every measure. His First Symphony, written as a graduation work and acclaimed at its premiere in 1926, follows by only three years. It would not be easy to discern that Dmitri Shostakovich wrote the piano trio, for none of his characteristic traits developed later in his career was in evidence at the time: no edge, no acidity, no bittersweet moments, no anguish, no satire. Instead, it flows easily in the fluent style of the Romantic era.
