Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed for their "artistry, poetry, and impeccable technique" (La Scena Musicale) Duo Concertante present 14 of their favorite encore pieces - music that is immediately recognizable and appealing to a wide audience. The brilliant arrangements by Clifford Crawley complement the virtuosity of Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves. Their joy in performing such wonderful music is evident on every track. Hailed for their "exceptional warmth and intimacy" (Ottawa Citizen), violinist Nancy Dahn and pianist Timothy Steeves have been described as "superb musicians" (Wholenote), who "work together with uncanny perfection" (Waterloo Gazette).
