Enchanting works for cello and piano.

Chinese-born artist Yelian He (aka the Kung Fu Cellist) knows firsthand the type of focus and discipline that’s required to endure the rigours of both kung fu training and cello. To master either artform takes more than physical prowess; it takes one’s entire character and being.

About the concert

His performance in Primrose Potter Salon together with pianist Yasmin Rowe presents an evening of enchanting works for cello and piano. Known for her intense focus and passion, Yasmin’s performances captivate audiences from start to finish.

Y Squared has been the winning formula for Yelian He and Yasmin Rowe since 2008, a collaboration and discipline that allows them to explore the depth of communication between two artists on stage. A delightful evening championing the finest cello and piano repertoire.
