BBC Magazine's 'Rising Stars' features Tessa Lark

On the heals of her 2018 BBT Fellowship award, violinist Tessa Lark is featured as one of the BBC Magazine's 'Rising Stars'.

Tessa Lark Violinist

Born: Kentucky, US

Career highlight: It was magical to perform at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam for my first time last year. And recently receiving the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship is a highlight and a great honour.

Music hero: The double-bassist and composer Edgar Meyer - his seemingly effortless and natural ability to work within a multitude of musical genres at a world-class level is a source of great inspiration.

Dream concert: Every audience member would be hearing the music for the first time in an intimate venue, with many  styles of music. I'd collaborate with my closest friends, and every note would be executed exactly as I envisioned it...and with no rehearsal!
