As a solo recitalist, chamber musician and concerto soloist, Yasmin Rowe’s dream is to travel the world – bringing with her performances and experiences to share with audiences everywhere.
Yasmin concluded her studentship by graduating from Chetham’s School of Music & the Royal Northern College of Music with Bernard Roberts, Murray McLachlan & Stephen Savage where she was awarded a BMus with first class honours in 2011, a Masters with Distinction in 2013 and the college’s most prestigious course; the International Artist Diploma in 2014, designed for musicians capable of sustaining an international career.
She is particularly pleased to have made her BBC Radio 3 debut live broadcast from the Manchester Imperial War Museum performing ‘On Wenlock edge’ by Vaughan Williams, and performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto K271 with the brilliant Manchester Camerata at the Chester Cathedral.
As a frequent performer, Yasmin maintains a tremendous artistic discipline which has sustained her through some testing experiences. Once, in a quiet passage during a recital in Newcastle a floodlight exploded, showering the room with sparks (an unintentional, yet spectacular pyrotechnic). A particularly stressful disaster occurred in 2011 when she broke her finger a few days before scheduled to play in Melbourne; six weeks later she gave a recital at the Wigmore Hall so, determined not to miss it, she played with her finger in a flexible splint. Bill Newman of MV Daily wrote of this recital “Lovely poised playing, with dexterous turns of phrase. She emulated those Golden Days of the Renaissance in Italy’s unrivalled years of musical supremacy.”
Yasmin has been winning competitions and awards for over sixteen years. These include the EPTA UK Piano competition, the Moray International Piano Competition, the Maisie Lewis award, the Oglesby Scholarship, the Myra Hess Award administered by the Musicians Benevolent Fund and the 2015 Antena 2 Prize in Obidos in Portugal.
She will be returning to Portugal in July 2016 to perform live on their radio broadcast on the station Antena 2.
As a chamber musician, Yasmin frequently plays with cellist Yelian He in the duo Y-Squared. Noted for their dynamic, yet sensitive partnership and their creative programming, they have won numerous awards including the Kirckman Concert Society and the Tunnell Trust. In 2014 they were made London City Music Foundation artists.
In November they will be returning to Australia for a series of trio recitals with renowned violinist and ex-concertmaster of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra; Wilma Smith.
Yasmin’s first commercial CD with Willowhayne Records will be released worldwide in 2016 – the disc features Bach, Chopin, Janáček and Kapustin.
Her CD has been picked up by British Airways for their collection of on-board entertainment in September.
