Due Corde was formed by Amelie Addison (cello) and Anne Marie Christensen (violin) in the spring of 2008 while both were studying at Trinity College of Music, London.
Due Corde exists to explore and promote wider appreciation both of the unique string sonorities and textures produced by the rarely revived practice of accompanying violin with cello alone, and of the many beautiful and intriguing but lesser-known 18th century works for violin and bass. Due Corde’s approach of taking the written notation of these emotive pieces as a starting point for experimentation brings freshness to their performance.
Due Corde were winners of the Richard III Prize for Historical Performance 2009 at the Royal College of Music, and of Trinity College of Music Early Music Competition 2010, and their recitals have been well-received at venue such as the National Gallery and V&A, on tour in Denmark, and at the Greenwich International Early Music Festival 2010.
‘Finely nuanced playing and beautiful gestures… A wonderful blend of lyricism and virtuosity’ Rachel Brown, adjudicator, Trinity College of Music Early Music Competition 2010.
