Fran & Flora
Bio: Described as “fiercely passionate” by BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction DJ Max Reinhardt Fran & Flora captivate their audiences with soulful laments, exquisite songs, irresistible dance tunes, and tales of their musical adventures. This new collaboration between violinist Flora Curzon and folk/experimental cellist Francesca Ter-Berg combines aspects of traditional string music and song from Eastern Europe with original compositions and improvisation. Having travelled across Europe to study with many great masters of Eastern European Roma and Klezmer music Fran & Flora perform this repertoire incorporating their own unique arrangements creating a sound that is both timeless and contemporary.
