Yelian He and Yasmin Rowe agreed to create Y-Squared in 2008 – since we work well together and share artistic ambitions, it’d be ridiculous not to see where it could go!

7 years on, we’ve performed for a great deal of people in a tonne of beautiful venues around the world; we’ve also won the inaugural Australian Cello Awards Competition Grand Prize in 2014 (see that photo on the left? It’s taken within 5 minutes after the final round performance while we were still sweating) and awards such as the Royal Over-Seas League Competition string finals, Tunnell Trust, Kirckman Concert Society and award from the City Music Foundation.

OCTOBER 20TH, 2015


What I learnt with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra

“2015 is a pretty special year for me. It’s the first year I’ve spent experiencing the 30’s, the first time my cello was swabbed and searched instead of me in an airport, and it’s the first time I’ve performed a concerto without a conductor – and with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra to boot.”

Now that Y-Squared has hit 7 years old, it’s time again to dress a little differently.

We picked a bolder and quirkier look because 2015 has been even more about fresh colours, vibrant ideas, and bold executions than previous years. Here’s to a beautiful and harmonious 2016 to all of you!

Pre-October 2015



…but for now enjoy Yelian defending his martial arts school while playing the cello, from 5 ill-mannered thugs looking for “a lesson”!

(No Cello was harmed in the making of this demonstration; some people were hurt, but not the Cello. Some kids cried, but they were fine too)

Quality over quantity - but in this instance the more love that reaches our audience, the happier we'll be.
