This recording byDuo Concertantecontains Franz Schubert's most important works for violin and piano.

This music is all about melody. In the Rondo, which is very virtuosic, Schubert settles down to beautiful lyricism. In the Fantasy the theme from Sei mir gegrüßt is simple, but exquisite - but the variations are extremely virtuosic. Even in Schubert's flashy moments he is still singing. The Lied is never far away in Schubert's music!

Canada's premiere violin and piano ensemble,Duo Concertante, are partners 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, has led to performances at Wigmore Hall, Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall, Roy Thomson Hall, the National Arts Centre, and the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing.
