O Duo

Described by The Daily Telegraph as "brimming with style and panache", over the past few years O Duo have made their BBC Proms debut, won a Special Commissioning Award from the Borletti-Buitoni Trust and been appointed Artistic Directors of the Children's Classic Concerts series in Scotland.

In 2010 O Duo returned to the Proms to give the premiere of Wilful Chants by Stephen Montague with the BBC Symphony Chorus and gave recitals at Wigmore Hall, Cheltenham and City of London Festivals.

Engagements the following season include the world premiere of Stephen McNeff's ConcertO-Duo with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican as part of their 80th-birthday celebrations. The Duo go on to give Hallowe'en Concerts and Christmas Concerts with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Orchestra of Scottish Opera at the Royal Concert Hall Glasgow and Queen's Hall Edinburgh.

Formed in 2000 at the Royal College of Music, O Duo released their first commercial CD on the Sony BMG label in 2007 to critical acclaim. They have given concerts as far afield as the Al Bustan, Harare and Mexico City Festivals and in Paris, Madrid, Lucerne, Zug, Germany and Bulgaria and performed concertos with the BBC Philharmonic, London Philharmonic and Philharmonia Orchestras.

Outstanding communicators, O Duo have worked at Abbey Road and Sony studios on television and film scores, appeared at the Proms in the Park in Hyde Park, and broadcast on BBC Radio 2 and 3, Classic FM, Channel 4 and BBC Television. In 2003 and 2004 they won Best Music Act of the Fringe at the Edinburgh Festival.
