Gemini Duo

Performers

German violinist Corinna Hentschel and Latvian violinist Lasma Taimina have recently formed Gemini Duo. The London based violin duo plays concerts in and around London, the UK and Europe. Their repertoire includes original classical pieces, as well as own arrangements of popular classical and non-classical music. Corinna and Lasma met in London, playing in the same orchestra. Both players are members of different chamber ensembles such as Duo Asteria and Rocamora Quartet and play in orchestras such as BBC Symphony, London Philharmonic Orchestra and Oxford Philharmonic. They tour around the world with the above ensembles and orchestras. Since 2017 Gemini Duo is part of the LiveMusicNow UK scheme. They regularly appear in UK’s concert series including Tilford-Bach-Society and others.
