Chamber Music Scotland
Ensemble in Residence 2019 - 2021

'Alice and Katrina’s openness, creativity and strong commitment to developing their creativity and musical life has been evident from the birth of GAIA. They are a wonderful example of a contemporary chamber ensemble who both value and celebrate the tradition but are eager to explore the new and what it means to be a chamber musician in the 21st Century.'

Paul Tracey - Chief Executive 
Chamber Music Scotland

It was a real pleasure to work with Katrina and Alice on a new duo. They brought so much to the table in terms of ideas and enthusiasm, and their playing was a direct inspiration for the work, leading me to explore new techniques and colours. I was glad to have their input in creating the work, and their performance was fresh, exciting and fun - with beautiful expressivity as well.
