Louisa Stonehill | Nicholas Burns

British chamber musicians Louisa Stonehill & Nicholas Burns emigrated from their native London to Keene, New Hampshire in the Summer of 2016. Eager to escape the confines of a major city and find nature, they have completely fallen in love with the Monadnock Region and the people that they have encountered since their big move. 

On stage they are often seen performing together as the Steinberg Duo.  The Sunday Telegraph described them as having both “warm musicality” and “virtuosity”, Gramophone magazine branded them “passionately committed advocates” and The Herald described their playing as “superbly characterised and open-hearted”. Over the last 5 years, The Duo has released four critically acclaimed albums for Nimbus Alliance and Lyrita. They have performed live on BBC Radio 3 and their 2015 release was broadcast by BBC Radio 3 in the UK and Radio Marabu in Germany.

Their performances have taken them to USA, Canada, Spain, Germany and all around the UK. From 2009-2016 they curated their own recital series in the beautifully intimate setting of the 1901 Arts Club on London’s Southbank. They also transformed a disused shop unit into a specialised chamber music studio in Greenwich, London, and held monthly recitals there from 2011-2016, giving audiences a rare opportunity to experience chamber music up close in a small space.
