As Canada’s preeminent chamber music duo, Nancy and Tim have received accolades across the globe through live performances and 12 acclaimed albums, commissioned over 65 new works from Canadian composers, and are founders and co-Artistic Directors of the renowned Tuckamore Festival. Their name – Duo Concertante comes from Beethoven’s inscription in the “Kreutzer” sonata, “in stilo molto concertante,” which implies the two performers are equal, dynamic voices.

“Suspended between poetry and romance, never do [they] sacrifice beauty of sound for the sake of virtuosity.”


“There’s simply not much you can do other than sit back, listen and be carried away by the complete artistry.”


“Majesty, passion, and excitement. They play with a wonderful give and take. Masterful and inspiring!”
