ORION DUO love to play chamber music for violin/viola and piano. Our repertoire is huge, and always growing – Click here to see a list.
EXCITING NEWS We are planning two concerts in September. On 26th September we are returning to Malone House. It is 150 years since the birth of Rachmaninoff, and we will base our concert on his music and that of the composers he respected. We will include the lovely cello sonata by Rachmaninoff. Also in September, we play a lighter concert at Holywood Parish Church, with lots of popular pieces for violin and viola with piano.
