Yukawa Chan Piano Duo

Cassie Yukawa and Rosey Chan are two dazzling young piano virtuosi with an eye for the theatrical. Former rivals on the junior competition circuit, the pair first began collaborating in November 2003, shortly after leaving the Royal College of Music where they had both studied with Yonty Solomon. Since then they have burst onto the UK classical music scene with performances at such prestigious venues as London’s South Bank Centre, Wigmore and Steinway Halls. Their repertoire extends from Mozart and Rachmaninov through to John Cage and collaborations with contemporary composers such as Kenneth Hesketh.
