About the artists
Aspiring to expand the genre of percussion chamber music, arx duo is dedicated to the creation and presentation of new works involving percussion, as well as the education of young artists striving to engage with audiences through the creation of new works. They have had premiere performances throughout the globe, conducted workshops on three continents, and worked with a variety of composers and artists to bring new creations to audiences everywhere.
Recently the duo has had their Royal Albert Hall concert premiere in London, UK performing Dominic Murcott's "Harmonic Canon". This fall, they begin a residency at Boston Conservatory working with the composition students to create ten new pieces! They continually perform recitals and collaborative concerts throughout the U.S. As members of The Percussion Collective Robert van Sice, now in its opening season, they premiered Garth Neustadter’s Seaborne this year, and have presented concerts and master classes at multiple universities.
With a repertoire ranging from established masters to today’s newest compositional voices, arx duo has worked closely with composers such as Alejandro Viñao, James Wood, and Ted Hearne. Upcoming new commissions include duos from Robert Honstein and Ian Gottlieb, a large project with the Dover String Quartet and Steve Mackey, and concertos from Pascal Le Boeuf, Nick Diberardino, and Jonathank Bailey Holland.
The name "arx duo" comes from the artists’ desire to forge new connections and artistic pathways or "arcs" within the genre, expanding the opportunities for their music to reach new audiences.
