The renowned sunny disposition of violinist Tasmin Little shone on Thursday evening in this Ruth Fermoy Memorial Concert, at St Margaret's Church, King's Lynn.

In company with pianist Martin Roscoe, the pair immediately displayed flowing lines in Bach's Sonata in E Major, gradually becoming more agitated until the transparent light allegro.

The feature of the whole programme was the musical equality from violin and piano with the finale of Brahms' Sonata in G Major exuding an emotional sense of joy without being jovial.

Prokofiev's 2nd Sonata was the platform for an extrovert opening Moderato, a Scherzo of singing quality – now this was jovial – and a calm serenity before the rustic dances of the finale.

Brahms' Sonatensatz, written to show off violinist Joachim's talent, earlier did the same for Tasmin Little and in which the nave acoustic brought both a warmth and tonal brightness from the artists.
