Memorising complicated solo passagework can be challenging - even for seasoned professionals! British violinists Tasmin Little and Jennifer Pike share their strategies on how to make memorisation less daunting with relatable anecdotes and analogies - including lighthouses, and why the ‘last movement of Elgar Violin Concerto is like Milton Keynes’.

This is an excerpt of Little and Pike’s conversation held in November 2021, hosted by the Royal Philharmonic Society. The complete film of the whole conversation is available for RPS members. To join, click here.
