Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Yojo, 19,” is Yojo’s fourth release with TYXart. His earlier albums, “Yojo, 15,” “Yojo, 17,” and “Atavistic Music,” all received critical acclaim. Yojo began his musical career as a young child, giving his first concerts when he was only 8 years old, which focused on classical and romantic literature, as well as his own compositions. For this release, Yojo has chosen works by Beethoven and Chopin, as well as two original works. His passacaglia “IRINI” won second prize at the international Diabelli Composition 2015, where Yojo was the youngest of all the candidates. “Yojo, 19,” is Yojo’s fourth release with TYXart.
