As an international concert pianist, Yasmin Rowe has won numerous prizes. She was first prize winner at the Moray International Piano Competition (UK) and the EPTA UK Piano Competition (UK), as well Seven Oaks Young Musician of the Year Competition (UK) and the Antena 2 Competition (Portugal).
Her first CD was released in 2016 with Willowhayne Records, and was quickly picked up by British Airways for their in-flight entertainment system. It was praised by eminent pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet who said, “After listening to this CD of Yasmin Rowe, 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. Her playing calls for respect”.
Her second CD, “Y2”, was released in 2017 with her cellist Yelian He – it too was quickly picked up by British Airways.
Yasmin is active as a chamber musician in Melbourne, and is a member of Collide, an exciting new Saxophone trio with Joseph Lallo and Yelian He; and Rock Paper Scissors, a piano trio with renowned violinist Wilma Smith.
She frequently performs with cellist Yelian He; they formed the successful piano/cello duo Y-Squared and together they won competitions such as the Royal Over-Seas League String Competition and the Australian Cello Awards (now amalgamated with the Young Performer’s Awards).
Yasmin toured the UK in April 2018 including Hampton Court Palace in London.
