Aquilae Duo : Harp and Flute
Eleanor Turner & Lisa Nelsen
Aquilae Duo was formed in 2008 when Eleanor and Lisa first performed the Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto together. When Mozart wrote his Concerto for Flute and Harp , the combination of flute and harp together was incredibly unusual. Nowadays there is a rich repertoire of flute and harp duets from which Aquilae Duo have chosen an atmospheric selection that shows off their technical artistry and close-knit ensemble.
Lisa Nelsen is internationally recognised for her versatility as a flute soloist, chamber and orchestral musician, educator and ensemble coach, and mentor in performance practices. Lisa and Eleanor both made their London debuts at the South Bank Centre and have performed extensively as soloists on an international platform. Lisa is a highly respected and in demand educator, having given masterclasses in Norway, Finland, Sweden, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, Hong Kong, Canada and the USA as well as in England.
Having grown up on a pig farm in Western Canada with professional singers for parents, Lisa is enjoying a life of music, travels and great people! Eleanor enjoys a busy career performing and recording internationally, which includes concerto performances in America and Australia, recording in London and Germany and touring with her folk band Ranagrí and tabla and harp duo Tala Tarang. She also teaches at the Birmingham Conservatoire.
Launde Classical Concerts offer the chance to hear an hour-long live concert in the company of some of the country’s leading performers, followed by a gorgeous Launde cream tea.
Tickets £16 (or £11 for concert only).
