Tasmin Little Recordings / discography
Tasmin Little has made 23 recordings, with repertoire ranging from Max Bruch and Johannes Brahms to Mieczysław Karłowicz and Arvo Pärt. She currently has a CD of her recordings available for free on her website, as part of her, "Three Step Challenge." The gist is to encourage people to listen to classical music by giving some away. She asks that people listen to the piece more than once, then write her, letting her know if anything is still keeping them from enjoying classical music.

For the "The Naked Violin" project, Tasmin received the 2008 Classic FM Gramophone Award for Audience Innovation on 25 September 2008 in London.

Tasmin's latest recording on the BIS label was released on 2 March 2009. "Partners in Time" is a follow-up to the Naked Violin project — a disc of works for violin and piano illustrating the chronological development of the relationship between the two instruments and the ways that composers have fallen in love with, and responded to, this partnership. The pianist is John Lenehan. A dedicated website was created for this project where Tasmin has recorded spoken introductions to the music with musical illustrations of the pieces.

Autumn 2010 sees the release of a major new recording with Chandos of the Elgar violin concerto including a re-creation of a special version of the accompanied cadenza.
