Celebrated for their “artistry, poetry, and impeccable technique” by La Scena Musicale, Duo Concertante is unquestionably Canada’s premiere violin and piano ensemble.
In musical terms their name denotes two solo parts and implies equality and balance, qualities that have been clearly evident ever since violinist Nancy Dahn and pianist Timothy Steeves made their dramatic entrance on this country’s classical music scene 20 years ago. They have recorded nine acclaimed CDs, including Beethoven’s Complete Sonatas for Violin and Piano, and J.S. Bach’s Sonatas for Violin and Keyboard, which earned raves from the international press.
It’s been said that chamber music is the purest distillation of classical composition – thoughtful and intuitive musical interplay that can reach rare heights of eloquence, grace, and fire. Expect all that and more when Duo Concertante are on stage and breathing new life into the masterworks of Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart.
