First Violin

Rikke Yde


My education: Diploma from the Royal Danish Conservatory and Private studies with Silvia Rosenberg in New York.

My favourite composition: How many are we allowed to name?

My greatest musical experience: Playing Verdi´s Requiem in the old Danish Radio concert hall with Gary Bertini in 2000.

My most memorable/funny/unusual experience in the Kapel: 1) At the Kapel´s 500 year anniversary celebration at the Hotel DÁngleterre when Victor Borge decided to join in on Thomas Ejes parody of him! 2) When I got to play the solo violin stage music in Lulu by Alban Berg.

When I’m not playing in the Kapel:  I like to swing dance (especially the Charleston and the Lindyhop).
