Duo Odéon takes their name from the street on which Antheil lived when he first moved to Paris. Antheil and his wife moved into an apartment above Sylvia Beach's bookshop Shakespeare & Co. where Antheil would meet everyone from Hemingway to Picasso and Pound. Just as Shakespeare & Co. and the Rue de l'Odéon provided deeply influenced and inspired Antheil, Hannah and Aimee have been deeply influenced by Antheil's pieces for violin and piano. Together they continue to explore Antheil's music, and the music of other early twentieth century composers, highlighting under-appreciated and rarely performed works.

Duo Odéon Tour

Duo Odéon will be touring Oregon from November 6-11 presenting a series of lecture-recitals on Antheil's music at three different universities, a masterclass for local high school students, and a final performance featuring the music of Anthiel, Ives, and Roy Harris.
