About Mainly Two

Violinists Marie Schreer and John Garner formed ‘Mainly Two’ with a view to expanding the repertoire for two violins and bringing greater attention to an often neglected medium.

Having commissioned new works from some of the top composers of the moment, Mainly Two gave their début show in two parts at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Performances soon followed in the ZHD Gallery, headquarters of the celebrated late architect Zaha Hadid, and in Italy as part of a tour of Puglia. They have appeared at new music events organised by Nonclassical, Listenpony, and From the Soundhouse, and have performed live on ResonanceFM. Their two-part début album Poetry / Synergy was released in November 2014 and re-released digitally on Turquoise Coconut in May 2016.

Plans for 2017 include new collaborations, festival appearances and further studio recordings. Expect a huge variety of styles and sounds from the minds of musicians working in genres as diverse as classical, jazz, world and electronic music.
