An Idea for a Concert?

Do you have an idea for a concert venue for us?  Would you like us to pay you a visit?  Try your ideas on us.  You may be surprised to find how versatile we are.  We play as a duo and a quartet, and can provide talks and concerts or a combination of the two in large and small venues.

We have ways of making things happen!

A Musical Duologue

Lindsay Braga (violin/piano) and Andrew Gillett (violin/viola/piano) are presenting a duet concert.

Through speech and strings they present duets by Bach, Mozart, Martinu, Brydern and others. They show how two is better than one and how the duet forms the basis of dialogue and interaction in chamber music.

This is an opportunity for them to share the heart of their ongoing musical exploration.
