ABOUT

Described as ‘London’s best kept secret’ and ‘fiercely passionate’, (Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio 3 Late Junction), string duo Fran & Flora is one of the most innovative emerging ensembles in the UK. Their outstanding musicianship combined with compelling arrangements have led to their selection as BBC Music Introducing Artists 2018 and rave reviews.

Violinist Flora Curzon and folk/experimental cellist Francesca Ter-Berg captivate their audiences with exquisite, soulful tunes from across Eastern Europe which they have learnt from many great masters of the Klezmer and Roma traditions. Delicately navigating the question of authenticity the duo have spent years developing a sound which is simultaneously reverent to the traditions they have been studying and deeply personal. 

“That playing has the kind of quality that you couldn’t fake or acquire in a hurry.” Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music.  

Fran & Flora embarked on this musical journey together following many years collaborating with groundbreaking artists including Talvin Singh (Mercury Prize Winner), Sam Lee & Friends (BBC Folk Award winner), Hejira, Dunajska Kapelye, the London Klezmer Quartet, Cosmo Sheldrake and Frank London(Klezmatics, US).

Their debut album will be released in early 2019.
