Aisling and Matthew met in Glasgow whilst studying at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Their joint passion for chamber music, interacting with composers and performing new music immediately brought them together. Since giving their debut recital at Queen’s University, Belfast in 2001 they have grown in popularity and the Duo is now recognised as one of the leading exponents of the genre. Their debut album Recital, affirms this reputation – featuring a wide range of virtuosic and beautiful music from around the globe. They have performed extensively earning the highest admiration from audiences around the world and recent performances include two US tours as well as concerts in Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Switzerland, Peru, Costa Rica, Malaysia, the UK and Ireland where the Duo have also recorded for RTE Lyric FM, as featured on the CD release Hiccup.
