“A thrilling recording of Bach’s Second Partita on the Willowhayne Records label landed on my desk a few weeks back. British pianist Yasmin Rowe has a keen sense of line and voicing, particularly in the final movement Capriccio. The rest of the disc is an imaginative selection of works by Chopin, Janacek and a concert etude by the jazz-inspired Russian composer Nikolai Kapustin.”

BBC Music Magazine’s Editor’s Choice, September 2016

“After listening to Yasmin’s debut CD, it is refreshing to hear music played with conviction, love and authenticity.  We can therefore enjoy the pure beauty of these masterpieces under her inspired fingers.”

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet

(has a) big personality, strong playing and intense vibrato.”

“A consummate master of the bow.”
