Violinists Flora Curzon and Piotr Jordan started Gaia Duo in 2014 to realise their passion for playing works for solo violin and violin duo, and explore in more depth their improvisation partnership. The two have played together in multiple ensembles, from string quartets to gypsy bands, but have discovered great excitement in playing repertoire written for just two violins.
Particularly at home in informal and intimate settings, Flora and Piotr explore and span the gap between classical, folk and improvised music, consistently delighting new and mixed audiences with the intensity and authenticity of their playing. Equally at home with classical music from the baroque to the 21st century, from Eastern European folk to swing, jazz and freely improvised music, this unique partnership offers truly magical musical experiences. Recent performances include the Brunel Museum and the basement of the Green Note.
Experienced musical entertainers, Gaia Duo is available to play at your event. This flexible partnership can play anything from classical solo and duo repertoire for your ceremony, to whirling folk tunes and jazz numbers for your reception or party. They can tailor their choice of music to your needs. Requests are welcomed!
Piotr Jordan, born and brought up in Lodz, Poland, is a London and Oxford based violinist. Echoing sounds from home, Piotr is best known for leading ‘Dunajska Kapelye’, a traditional Eastern European and gypsy band, and is described by the Evening Standard as ‘the sweetest gypsy violin in London’. Perhaps even closer to home for Piotr, however, is the world of classical music. Since graduating from the Warsaw Conservatoire in 1986 - their youngest ever graduate - where studied with Irena Dubiska, he has worked extensively in Europe, including for the Lodz National Opera and Warsaw National Opera. In 1994 he moved to the UK has has played in numerous professional ensembles, including the Bampton Classical Opera (principle) and the London Schubert Players (principle, and principle second).
