Artist info

Kazue Yanagida

Kazue Yanagida has given many concerts in the U.K. and Japan and has been freelancing in orchestras such as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. She has also led the Cosmos orchestra that gave a World Premiere Performance of Dai Fujikura’s “Shadows Light”. She started playing the violin at the age of five and studied with Noriko Miki, Toshiya Eto and Takaya Urakawa in Japan.

She came to London in 1988 to study at the Royal Academy of Music with Howard Davis. In 1993 she graduated with the highest degree (First Class Honors) for the violin performance, winning two of the major violin competitions — the Alfred J Waley Violin Prize and the Winifred Small Solo Violin Prize at the RAM.

She went on to study with the late Yfrah Neaman at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she gained the Diploma of Advanced Instrumental Studies.

From at the age of six she has participated in many masterclasses by eminent soloists — William Primrose, Ida Haendel, Anne Sophie Mutter, Zakher Bron, Riggiero Ricci and Shin’ichi Suzuki — as well as receiving chamber music coaching with a member of the Amadeus Quartet.

In 2003, 2004 and 2007 she performed Mozart's Violin Concertos No. 3, 4 and 5 with the Mornington Sinfonia, London. She has also appeared as a soloist with the I Maestri Orchestra playing Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 4.

Patricia Capone

Patricia Capone began her musical studies in Caracas, Venezuela, with Lyl Tiempo. In 1978 she was awarded a scholarship and came to London where she studied with Maria Curcio and later on with Allan Schiller and Joan Havill.

In 1985 Patricia graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and has since established a private teaching practise and also teaches at Channing School. Patricia has performed widely both as a soloist and in chamber ensembles in the UK, Europe and South America.

Her playing has been praised for its spirit and sensitivity.
