Notes & Reviews:

Known for the passion and brilliance of their performances, Duo Concertante has been developing since 1997 the extraordinarily unified voice that has become one of the most striking features of their work.

Nancy Dahn, violin and Timothy Steeves, piano--`two packages of musical dynamite` (Halifax Chronicle-Herald) --maintain a busy touring schedule across North America, Europe and China and have appeared a Wigmore Hall (London), Weill Recital Hall (New York City), the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Los Angeles), Roy Thomson Hall and the Four Seasons Performing Arts Centre (Toronto), the National Arts Centre (Ottawa), and the Forbidden City Concert Hall (Beijing).

Duo Concertante's previous Marquis release `It Takes Two` (MQSCD- 81401) was described as 'spectacular` (American Record Guide). Dahn and Steeves are energetic and experienced educators who have given hundreds of workshops and master classes; in 2000, they founded the Tuckamore Chamber Music Festival, of which they remain Artistic Directors, to bring together young chamber music performers with world-class artists and ensembles.

Duo Concertante
In June of 2011 we began a major recording project - that of all ten Beethoven sonatas - at the Glenn Gould studio in Toronto. We chose this project because these works continue to shape who we are as an ensemble and form the foundation of our repertoire. (The "Kreutzer" was also the work that brought us together musically and romantically!) Even after playing and performing all of these sonatas for many years, recording all ten is a daunting, challenging, and an extremely enriching undertaking. We are delighted to be working again with David Jaeger as producer and the wonderful team at the GG. Recording sessions will continue in January and June of 2012.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
The violin playing is always clean, clear, and accurate, and the recorded sound comes across as natural. Dahn and Steeves take a leisurely approach to most of these sonatas. Messiereur and Bogunia do treat each sonata individually, and they bring out the humor in some of the movements.
