Duo Dorado have been charming audiences with their performances since 1999. Fired by a shared commitment to present music of the 17th and 18th centuries in an accessible way, these two prize-winning musicians have performed together throughout the UK and beyond. In recent years they have developed a specialist interest in music from seventeenth-century England, particularly violin sonatas from the time of Purcell, and have established a reputation as performers in this neglected field. They present a programme including music from their two recent CDs – Violin Sonatas and Harpsichord Suites by William Croft on CRD, and The Unknown Purcell – violin sonatas by Daniel Purcell on Chandos.
