"With six brilliant new works performed with world-class expressiveness and musicality, Newfoundland’s Duo Concertante has released a powerful and deeply moving album... This release is a stunning collection of highly personal works wonderfully performed by the duo." - Adam Scime, The Wholenote

Ecology of Being is a collection of commissioned musical works inspired by nature and the climate emergency. The music encourages reflection about our connections to this planet, considers what we are leaving the next generation and our role in the world’s rapid, alarming, and ominous changes. It pays tribute to the wonder and power of nature. Read the complete booklet notes.

Canada’s premiere violin and piano ensemble, Nancy Dahn and Timothy Steeves create a musical legacy through live performances, recordings and a determination to provoke thought about our world through art. Outstanding musicians and champions of new Canadian music, Nancy and Tim are partners in music and in life. 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).
