Notes and Editorial Reviews
Following the success of their critically acclaimed Beethoven: Complete Sonatas for Violin and Piano Duo Concertante have recorded J. S. Bach: Six Sonatas for Violin and Keyboard.
Gramophone described their Beethoven recording as “deeply integrated performances as if the music were being created on the spot…Dahl and Steeves both have a way with a turn and a trill, based on thoughtful study and practical experience, which they use as expressive devices to liberate the music’s ebb and flow.”
As a set, Bach’s Six Sonatas or Violin and Keyboard represent a remarkable achievement in the development of the sonata for solo instrument and accompaniment. The violin and keyboard parts are equal participants in the
musical dialogue and create a true duo texture. The series is landmark in the history of the genre.
Canada’s premiere violin and piano ensemble, Duo Concertante is known for the passion and brilliance of their performances. This husband and wife team’s extraordinarily unified voice has become one of the most striking features of their work, and earned them much critical praise. Read less
