Bach’s Six Sonatas for Violin and Keyboard represent a remarkable achievement in the development of the sonata for solo instrument and accompaniment.

"It is an odyssey to play all six sonatas, but it’s very different from playing the complete Beethoven sonatas. With Beethoven you are always aware of his immense personality almost leaping off the score at you. Playing all of his sonatas certainly gives you a sense of who he was, what he was experiencing and coping with in different periods of his life.

Bach’s music is less of a personal statement: it feels as if it encompasses a much broader human and spiritual experience. With all great composers, you feel gratitude that they wrote music you can experience as you play it. With Bach, that kind of deep gratitude is particularly intense." - Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves

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. Critics have praised Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves’ "artistry, poetry, and impeccable technique" (La Scena Musicale). The Duo’s busy touring schedule across North America, Europe, and China, have led to performances at Wigmore Hall, Weill Recital Hall, Roy Thomson Hall, the National Arts Centre, and the Forbidden City Concert Hall in Beijing.
