Yasmin Rowe

Not bombastic, exactly, though there is certainly something of that quality present in her playing.

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, Janáček, Scriabin and Chopin.

A memorable concert from an accomplished and mature talent.
