Kazue Yanagida began her studies with Noriko Miki at the age of five and came to England in 1988 to study at the Royal Academy of Music where she graduated with First Class Distinction for the violin performance having won two first prizes of violin competitions at the RAM, Alfred J Waley Violin Prize and Winifred Small Solo Violin Prize. During her time at the RAM she was under the guidance of Howard Davis and Zakher Bron and the Amadeus Quartet for chamber music. She has participated in many masterclasses including by Ruggiero Ricci, Ida Haendel and Anne-Sophie Mutter and was also a prizewinner of the Anglo-Czechoslovak Music Trust. She was given the honour of a loan of a prestigious Grancino violin from the RAM.


Having studied further for four years with Yfrah Neaman at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she gained a Diploma of Advanced Instrumental Studies, she has given many concerts in the UK and abroad and made several concerto appearances. She has played as sub-principal in the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and worked with Sir Colin Davis, Tadaaki Otaka, Mark Wigglesworth, Alfred Brendel, Stephen Kovacevich and Freddy Kempf at venues such as the Barbican Hall and the Queen Elizabeth Hall. She has also lead the CosmosEnsemble that gave a world premiere performance of Dai Fujikura’s “Shadow’s Light”.

In October 2010 at St Dunstan in-the-West her concert was broadcast by TV Shizuoka in Japan.

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.
