Duos

Karel Bredenhorst (cello) and Simon Callaghan (piano)

Duo Verzaro

Having met in 2013, Karel Bredenhorst and Simon Callaghan, as Duo Verzaro, give frequent recitals on the continent and in the UK, and have released two CDs.
 
“primordial musicality and a flawless technique”

— Trouw (Netherlands), Frederike Berntsen

Saxophone and Piano

Huw Wiggin and John Lenehan

Described as “a sympathetic and imaginative partnership”, this duo brings together two great talents and can be heard on Orchid Classics disc ‘Reflections’.

“Marcello’s Concerto in D minor (originally for oboe) works splendidly, and Lenehan deftly conjures the crispness of a fortepiano in his accompaniment, while in Manuel de Falla’s ‘7 Canciones populates españolas’ Wiggin brings both silk and spice to his vibrant interpretation.”
— BBC Music Magazine, Kate Wakeling (reviewing ‘Reflections’ CD)

Saxophone and Harp

Huw Wiggin and Oliver Wass

This talented young duo was formed in 2016 through a shared love of the repertoire for saxophone and harp, and is featured on Huw’s disc ‘Reflections’.

“I was particularly struck by the Debussy arrangements, ‘Arabesque No. 1’ and ‘The Girl with the Flaxen Hair’, where Wiggin is partnered by Oliver Wass’s harp. A seemingly unlikely combination that works real magic.”
— Planet Hugill, Robert Hugill (reviewing ‘Reflections’ CD)

Goran Krivokapić and Danijel Cerović

Montenegrin Guitar Duo

Goran Krivokapić & Danijel Cerović perform frequently at eminent venues worldwide, and have released two CDs for Naxos, heralded as “absolutely essential”.
 
“…precision of ensemble, the clarity of articulation, the rhythmic vitality and the exuberant ornamentation”
— Gramophone, William Yeoman

Simon Callaghan and Hiroaki Takenouchi

Parnassius Piano Duo

Rowland Bogdanovic Duo

— NPO Radio 4: ‘Discotabel’, Frederike Berntsen

Daniel Rowland (violin) and Alberto Mesirca (guitar)

— American Record Guide, Kenneth Keaton
