Organist to the Apollon Duo
The Apollon Duo was founded in 2015 by violinist Dora Chatzigeorgiou and organist Alexander Binns. Their aim is to perform and promote works for this seldom heard combination of instruments. The Duo have performed across the UK in venues which include St Paul’s Cathedral, Peterborough Cathedral, St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Derby Cathedral, Southwark Cathedral, Waltham Abbey, Rochdale Town Hall, the Melbourne Festival and the Bury St Edmunds Festival. Their repertoire spans from the baroque period to the present day and includes repertoire by Bach, Bruhns, Lloyd Webber, Hindemith, Bednall, Olsson, Karg-Elert, Bossi, Rheinberger and Cooman.
‘The Apollon Duo brought a fresh approach to the repertoire. Superb organ playing and sensitive accompaniments complimented and supported the commanding and expressive violin playing such that the whole was greater than the sum of its parts.’
