Yurie Mitsuhashi

Violin

Hometown: Fort Lee, NJ
Alma maters: The Juilliard School, B.M.; Yale School of Music, M.M.
Favorite pieces to play: Ysaÿe’s Danse Rustique, Bach’s Chaconne, and Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring
Favorite composer fact: Bach was a bit of a hooligan in his youth. He skipped school and such, so he really wasn’t perfect! He was also allegedly well-prepared to defend himself with a knife or sword when a young and short-tempered bassoonist challenged him to a duel.
Favorite musical memory: Performing in front of a live audience in Waco, TX for a From the Top episode
Which composer would have had the best social media: George Gershwin
Favorite non-classical musician or band: Fleet Foxes and Daft Punk
Musical guilty pleasure: Disney soundtracks
Best music to have on repeat: Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin and Daft Punk’s Discovery album
What recording would you take to a deserted island: Encore! by Midori. I always listened to this recording as a child, mostly likely because my mother NEVER changed the CDs in the car. It is forever etched into my memory, so I might as well take it to an island too.
Favorite non-musical hobby or activity: Cooking, watching Disney movies, crafting with wood, playing with my cat, and hanging with the ‘stros (short for “maestro”, or “friend”)
Favorite book: A treasured book from my youth was Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier
Favorite painting: The Kiss by KlimtI swear that I’ve liked it before IKEA had it in their pile.
Piece of advice for a young classical musician: Always remember the Five W’s both when you practice and perform.
Time travel destination: 1970s/80s in Japan and Korea. I would love to know what my parents were up to when they were younger! Otherwise, would love to have a day out in the 1950s, USA.
