City Music Foundation video shoot
On March 9th 2016 CMF artists Y-Squared launched two new music videos produced and commissioned by CMF. The videos themselves were directed by fellow CMF Artist and member of the Kaleidoscope Saxophone Quartet, Ian Dingle. The videos were filmed earlier in the year in a very chilly Asylum Chapel in Peckham, London.
The event itself was organised along with Hancock Artists who represent Yasmin and Yelian, in the unique Rebecca Hossack Gallery in St, Fitzroy Square. CMF Artist Manager Tabitha McGrath headed to the venue early in the day to oversee the set up as the videos were to be premièred on a big screen. The rest of the CMF team went later on to finish off the set up and get ready for the guests.
Guests started to arrive and the drinks started flowing! Yasmin and Yelian performed three pieces prior to the video premières beginning with Yelian performing a rather jolly Svante Henryson piece entitled Black Run.
Yasmin followed this with a stunning rendition of Liszt’s arrangement of Schumann’s Widmung from Myrthen Op.25. The duo finished off the live music portion of the evening with Beethoven’s Sonata No.4 in C Major Op. 102.
Ian Dingle took a moment to introduce the videos saying that he always wanted to do something innovative and off the beaten track with Y-Squared videos; something that one can clearly see aligns with Y-Squared’s ethos.
You can take a look at both videos here as well as a gallery of photos of the recording sessions and the videos launch evening.
