Simon Powis and Jacques Lee Wood have been working together for the last five years, starting out as colleagues at the Yale School of Music. Recently they recorded their first duo album “Paperworks” and launched the recording with five concerts in China.
Their repertoire includes Shubert’s Arpeggione Sonata, Manuel De Falla’s Spanish songs, Gnatalli’s Sonata for Guitar and Cello, Arvo Pärt’s stunning Spiegel im Spiegel, and songs by Reynaldo Hahn.
Looking to the future Simon & Jacques will be commissioning new works for the instrumental combination from New York based composers and abroad.
