Naomi and Zosia first met playing in Raph Clarkson’s Dissolute Society, an ensemble fusing free improvisation, jazz, baroque music and spoken word. Since then, their versatility and kinship has brought about a busy schedule of recordings and performances together in an eclectic range of ensembles and sessions. Highlights include; David Hockney’s Tate Britain Retrospective Exhibition, numerous film scores, and contemporary jazz, folk and pop albums.
In 2019 they formed a duo to explore their love of repertoire from the Baroque era to the present day, as well as folk songs and improvisation.
Drawing on progressive ideas of movement and expression from thinkers including Rudolf Laban, Jacques Dalcroze and Moshe Feldenkrais, they have shared their approach through creative residencies, performances and educational and community settings in the UK and Norway.
So far they have performed works by Bach, Bartok, Edmund Finnis and Karin Govaerts and are currently working on a concert series and album recording to include the Ravel Sonate and new commissions from acclaimed composers Deborah Pritchard and Dan Samsa.
They will present a programme of music for violin and cello from classical to folk music including Bach, Bartok, Edmund Finnis and some improvisation.
