“Yann Passabet-Labiste is in my opinion one of the finest violinists of his generation”

Rudolf Koelman (Jascha Heifetz’s mentee)

“… I watched recently a performance of his playing the Tchaikovsky Concerto, and was stunned at his impeccable playing and manner of execution. In addition to flawless intonation, a left hand that any violinist would envy, and complete control of the architecture of the piece and sound music making. Mr. Passabet-Labiste possesses a bow-arm that is rarely seen (Vengerov had such a remarkable bow-arm). This kind of bow-arm goes beyond what can be taught, and although must be cultivated through years of dedicated preparation, is a gift that very few possess.”

Mark Laycock (international conductor)
