Britain's top concert violinist released her latest album, The Naked Violin, free on the Internet in an effort to draw more people to classical music, she says. Tasmin Little will begin a national concert tour later this year — and the venues will be factories, airports and shopping malls. It's all part of her effort to try to get Bach and Mozart out of the cultural ghetto.
