Canadian violinist Katie Stillman and English pianist Simon Lane began their musical partnership whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and celebrated their 10th Anniversary year as a duo in 2015.

In their first competition together in 2005 they won the RNCM Helen Porthouse Paganini Prize with a performance of the Brahms G Major Sonata, and in the spring of that year the duo were chosen for the Tillett Trust Young Artist Platform. The duo are past winners of numerous other awards, including being selected for the Worshipful Company of Musicians’ Maisie Lewis Award and the Park Lane Group Young Artists’ New Year Series at the Purcell Room.

“Stillman and Lane … combined tenderness, wistful nostalgia and red-blooded passion in an interpretation of terrific distinction and compelling emotional force.”
