DUO SKWERES

 

Yui Iwata-Skweres (violin) and Tomasz Skweres (cello) have been performing internationally as Duo Skweres since 2016 - in Germany, Austria, Poland, Japan and Argentina. The works of the 20th and 21st centuries play a particularly important role in the duo's repertoire. In addition to „classics“ of the instrumentation  violin and cello, like  the Duo for Violin and Cello by Zoltan Kodaly and the Sonata for Violin and Cello by Maurice Ravel, the ensemble is dedicated to contemporary music and works closely with composers.
