The Artist

Currently a scholarship student of Professor Hu Kun at the Royal Academy of Music, Yinong Xiao’s recent array of violin performances has taken him to: Wigmore Hall, where he performed Debussy works for violin and piano; St James’s Piccadilly, presenting an unaccompanied recital of Bach, Ysaÿe and Ernst; and Hatfield House, where he played sonatas by Brahms and Handel on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the St Albans Organ Festival.

Previously, Yinong performed Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto in D major at Cadogan Hall with the Purcell School symphony orchestra, as the winner of the school’s concerto competition. In addition to his extensive concertising, Yinong has a wealth of experience participating in international music events, including the 26th Postacchini competition where he was a finalist. In 2023, Yinong was awarded the Mica Comberti Prize by the Royal Academy of Music, for the performance of a complete solo work by Bach. Yinong was also a previous prizewinner of the Windsor & Maidenhead young musician’s competition.

Prior to joining the Royal Academy of Music, Yinong studied at the Purcell School from 2016-2022 with Professor Nathaniel Vallois of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Currently, Yinong plays a violin by J B Vuillaume, generously on loan from the Academy.
