"An evening of superb music making... Performed with intensity and tenderness... passionate and flamboyantly virtuosic, bringing the audience to its feet... Booking Kramer and Durcan was a major coup."

The KramerDurcan Duo's partnership began on a Eurostar train to London in 2004, when Miriam and Nicholas were each returning from separate performances in Paris. Since then, they've given over 500 performances together, broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, WQXR (USA) and recorded an acclaimed disc of music by Szymanowski on the Naxos label, described by the American Record Guide as 'a superlative recording' . Their performances have taken them to Hong Kong, USA, the Middle East, New Zealand and across Europe. They are based in London, where they have given recitals for the London Chamber Music Series and Rothschild's Classical Recital Series, and have performed at London's South Bank, Wigmore Hall, St. John's Smith Square and Kings Place. Future performances include recitals in South Africa, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Cincinnati and across Israel. They will also be releasing a new recording of their own arrangements of music by Gershwin and by popular demand, Volume 2, of Side by Side.
Miriam and Nicholas are known for their heartfelt and fiery performances, along with colourful programming, making them a firm favourite with audiences.
'Kramer has a big, passionate tone when it's wanted, a sweet, tender tone when it's needed, and a superb technique all the time. Durcan is as much a partner, as an accompanist and he supports Kramer with sympathy and affection.'
