Maya Homburger is a violinist specialising in Baroque and New Music, having played for many years with groups conducted by John Eliot Gardiner, Trevor Pinnock and Christopher Hogwood she now concentrates on her work with smaller ensembles and the Homburger / Guy Duo.

Barry Guy also started in classical music, holding principal bass positions in major London orchestras before starting the London Jazz Composers Orchestra, the Barry Guy New Orchestra and more recently the “Blue Shroud Band”  and embarking on a high-profile career as an improviser and composer.

When the two met in 1988 they began playing as a duo, juxtaposing baroque music with free improvisation and newly-commissioned pieces. In this performance you’ll hear movements from Bach’s solo violin works alongside works by Kurtág; stunning bass improvisations from Guy and his composition ”Quindecim”  with texts by Samuel Beckett.
