“Silver waves crashing against a craggy cliff, that’s an image that came to mind. Rowe’s style is characterised by a restless, relentless dynamism. She is an athletic pianist. Prokofiev’s Sonata No 6 in A major was the centrepiece of a superb recital, which also included works by Haydn, Janacek, Scriabin and Chopin. A memorable concert from an accomplished and mature talent.”
“Yasmin is obviously much more interested in engaging the audience musically than using it to show off her undeniable technique. As it was it sounded at times as though she was playing a duet! There was a flawless transition to the 3rd movement . . .”
“The debut CD of British pianist Yasmin Rowe shows her to be a real ‘live wire’ if there ever was one . . . Rowe’s Bach playing is in the tradition of Glenn Gould . . . I could listen to Bach played like this all day.”
“In their Cathedral concert, the Chichester Symphony Orchestra’s distinguished accompaniment to the exceptional soloist, Yasmin Rowe, ensured a memorable interpretation of this great work. Rowe’s charm, virtuosity and poise brought an enormous freshness and power to her playing.”
“I heard Yasmin Rowe previously at a Keyboard Trust recital, and she bowled me over with her finely controlled playing and performances. She started on the evening of 24 October 2011 with Domenico Scarlatti’s Sonata in D minor, K 141. Lovely poised playing with dexterous turns of phrase, she emulated those Golden Days of the Renaissance in Italy’s unrivalled years of musical supremacy . . .”
“Many will have been most impressed by 15-year-old Yasmin Rowe’s command of Shostakovich’s sometimes driving, sometimes tricky rhythms in his second piano concerto. But the real measure of her remarkable talent came in her songful phrasing of the slow movement. Here was not just precocity and technique, but musicianship.”
