Top British Violinist, Tasmin Little, has announced plans to release her next album Naked Violin for free online next week. Although fairly well known within classical music circles, Tasmin wanted to grow her fanbase, so her solution was to use the power of free. The classical music genre has seen a huge rebound as a result of the internet, so perhaps it's not surprising to see more classical musicians embracing its power more quickly. Seems like they're finally starting to realize that the actual problem isn't that people were "stealing" their music, but rather that not many people actually cared enough to bother.
