Langley Community Music School will welcome Nancy Dahn, violin, and Timothy Steeves, piano of Duo Concertante to the Rose Gellert Hall for the season opener of Concerts Café Classico on Sept. 30.

A pre-concert coffee and commentary with Elizabeth Bergmann, LCMS’ artistic director, will begin at 10 a.m., followed by the performance at 11 a.m.

“The pair will interpret the youthful and spirited Sonata in B flat, KV. 378 by Mozart and the romantic sonata by Strauss,” said Bergmann.

“Strauss wrote this sonata just after he fell in love with his wife-to-be and his romantic feelings are reflected in the many lyrical moments found throughout. In addition the very popular and famous Latin hit, Tico Tico by Brazilian composer Zequina de Abreu will be performed.”

This husband and wife duo, who are professors at Memorial University in St. John’s Nfld., will perform some of the most beautiful highlights of the violin and piano repertoire.

Known for the passion and brilliance of their performances, Duo Concertante have been developing since 1997 the unified voice that has become one of the most striking features of their work.

Named Newfoundland & Labrador Arts Council’s Artist of the Year in May 2010, Duo Concertante have released four ac­claimed CDs.

A fifth recording, Wild Bird (2010), comprises works written especially for the duo by Canadian composers Murray Scha­fer, Chan Ka Nin, and Kati Agócs, including Schafer’s only major work for violin and pia­no.

Dahn and Steeves are energetic and experienced educators who have given hundreds of workshops and master classes.

In 2000, they founded the Tuckamore Chamber Music Festival, of which they remain Artistic Directors, to bring together young chamber music performers with world-class artists and ensembles.

Season subscriptions are still available at 15 per cent off regular ticket prices.

Concerts Café Classico subscriptions include six concerts and are available for $77 adults, $67 seniors, and $51 students.

A Concerts Café Classico flex pass is also available that gives access to any four concerts for $54 adults and $47 seniors.

Regular tickets are available for $15 adults, $13 seniors and $10 students. Call the box office for tickets at 604-534-2848. The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 St. in Langley.
