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.

  • Yelian He

    He was presented to Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II in 2011 at a reception for outstanding Australians in the UK and again in 2013 in a private performance for the Queen and her Commonwealth guests at Buckingham Palace.

  • Yasmin Rowe

    Yasmin graduated in 2014 from the RNCM's prestigious 'International Artist Diploma'- a course designed for performers identified as having the potential to sustain an international performing career.





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

We picked a bolder, brighter and quirkier look because 2015 has been all about fresh colours, vibrant ideas, and bold executions. Here’s to a beautiful and harmonious 2016 to all!

…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.
