Kaede Yamamoto

Born in Tochigi, Japan, Kaede started playing oboe aged 13. 

She received her postgraduate degree at the Royal Academy of Music, where she studied oboe under Prof. Celia Nicklin, and Cor Anglais with Sue Bohling. At the Royal Academy, she won the Leila Bull Oboe Prize in 2016, and the Evelyn Rothwell/ Barbirolli Prize in 2018. In 2017, she performed Copland's Quiet City with the Academy String Orchestra and Jo Cole.

Before her studies in London, Kaede received her bachelor's degree at Tokyo University of the Arts (Geidai) in Japan, under the tutelage of Prof. Yoshiaki Obata, Hitoshi Wakui and Satoki Aoyama. While she was studying in Geidai, she performed the Mozart Oboe Concerto K.314 with the Geidai Philharmonia Tokyo under the baton of Peter Csaba in 2014.

In 2019, Kaede won the first prize for the 88th Music Competition of Japan, which is one of the most famous competition in Japan.
She has also participated in several international competitions, and performed at the semi-final of the 4th Barbirolli International Oboe Competition in the Isle of Man in 2017, as well as the 11th International Oboe Competition (Sony) in Karuizawa, Japan in 2015. 

She is also keen on playing baroque music, and she has studied baroque oboe with Masamitsu San’nomiya and Katharina Spreckelsen.

Kaede is grateful for the support from the Japan Performance Federation, Aoyama Music Foundation, and Seki Foundation.

She is now the oboe/cor anglais player of Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo.
