Violin and Piano Duo

Violin and Piano Duo

Whether you are planning an afternoon tea, press presentation / product launch or an evening drinks reception, our stylish duo will look and sound great!

The violin and piano duo works well for formal dinners too. However, for larger events please bear in mind that some amplification may be necessary.

The Pepys Ensemble

A flexible ensemble of two to eight players available for concerts and other functions.

 

The Pepys Ensemble
"I do consider that [music] is all the pleasure I live for in the world, and the greatest I can ever expect in the best of my life."
Music [is] a science peculiarly productive of a pleasure that no state of life, publick or private, secular or sacred: no difference of age or season; no temper of mind or condition of health exempt from present anguish; nor, lastly, distinction of quality, renders either improper, untimely, or unentertaining.
