Baroque Duo with David Gordon

I have been fascinated by period instrument performance since my childhood - a fascination that has finally led to the acquisition of a baroque period violin in the condition it left the maker. I also have a couple of beautiful instruments still in restoration.
This has created some immediate interest in the early music world, including a live broadcast for the Early Music Show on Radio 3 with L'Avventura London.
David has long been in demand in the Baroque world - see his biog on the Lightning Thieves page - and plays with many of the leading Baroque orchestra. He has also worked with baroque violin superstar Andrew Manze (and Nigel Kennedy) and is frequently asked to be a concerto soloist in his own right. He has a fantastic depth of knowledge and plays with passion and with - the perfect duo partner.
I like to think that we play with an approach that combines freshness, vitality and dynamism with a profound interest in the stylistic implications of the era.
