Canada’s premiere violin and piano ensemble, Duo Concertante, are Nancy-Dahn-and-Timothy-Steevespartners in music and in life. Their name, Duo Concertante, was taken from the inscription over Beethoven’s “Kreutzer” sonata which reads, “in stilo molto concertante,” implying that the two performers must be equal and dynamic voices. This notion defines Duo Concertante’s artistic relationship. The “Kreutzer” sonata was the first piece the duo played when, in 1997, they burst into the performance world like “two packages of musical dynamite” (Halifax Chronicle-Herald). Known for the passion and brilliance of their performances, critics have praised Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves’ “artistry, poetry, and impeccable technique” (La Scena Musicale) and “deeply integrated performances that flow naturally as if the music were being created on the spot” (Gramophone). The Duo’s busy touring schedule across North America, Europe, and China, have lead to performances at Wigmore Hall, Weill Recital Hall, Roy Thomson Hall, the National Arts Centre, and the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing.

Doors open at 5pm, concert at 6pm.
