Yuko Inoue, winner of the 17th Budapest International Viola Competition has performed worldwide with orchestras and as a soloist and chamber musician. She performs and records frequently with Britain’s most eminent chamber ensembles and in festivals such as Lockenhaus, Kuhmo, Cheltenham, Bath and Aldeburgh. She also guest-leads at orchestras such as BBC Philharmonic, London Philharmonia, English Chamber Orchestra and London Sinfonietta. Her solo CDs, Romanze, and Bach’s Gamba Sonatas (and the Chaconne) have both earned much critical acclaim. Yuko teaches at the Royal Academy of Music (and at it’s Junior department) in London and plays on a viola by J B Vuillaume, kindly loaned by Mr John Sanderson.
