London, United Kingdom, July 28, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Violin sensation, Diana Yukawa is to record her new album at the world famous Abbey Road Studios in London in July this year.
Abbey Road studio was built as a family home in 1830. EMI began recording on the premises in 1931, the majority of the recordings were orchestral works. The Beatles, recorded 90% of their albums and singles there between 1962 and 1970. The facilities at Abbey Road Studios are now considered among the best in the world.
The studio’s have also been used by Michael Jackson, Oasis, Cliff Richard, Kanye West, Kate Nash and very soon, Diana Yukawa.
Diana’s new album is revolutionary and original, making Abbey Road the perfect match for the 23 year old. The Beatles who notoriously recorded at Abbey were known for breaking tradition, changing recording techniques and constantly pushing the boundaries of what was considered popular music. Diana’s music is set to push musical boundaries and to break the mould for the violin, quashing the misconception that the violin is only a classical instrument.
Diana remains fully respectful of her classical routes whilst creating a unique sound for the instrument that has been her life since age 5.
In 2000 Diana recorded her first classical album at Snape and Maltings at age 14. In 1965 the expanding Aldeburgh Festival urgently needed a purpose built concert hall. After much searching, Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears found a disused maltings at Snape. Architects were commissioned to oversee the conversion of the old agricultural building into a state of the art auditorium – of which stands today.
Diana’s second album was recorded at Air Studios at age 15. Air Studio;s was founded in London in 1965 by Beatles producer George Martin and his partner John Burgess after their departure from EMI.
Diana’s third album is set to be very different…
With Producer Andy Wright, Diana has developed 10 original tracks and will be doing 2/3 covers all aimed at the modern-day music listener. The album, which is yet to be named, is being release in October starting in Japan with a planned (although not confirmed) release shortly after throughout Europe, the Middle East, America and Canada.
