Since its establishment in 2013 the Ardorè Duo has delighted audiences at many prestigious venues. Following a debut at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena, a busy schedule quickly developed across Italy including appearances at the Villa d'Este, Festival Pontino, Villa Vigoni, AGIMUS, St. Paul’s Within the Walls, Villa dei Cardinali, Narni Music Festival 2016 and 2017, the Polish Cultural Institute in Italy, the Danish Academy of Rome, Milton Court in London, and Accademia Filarmonica Romana. A highlight was a recital at the Museum of the Violin in Cremona where they were offered the use of the famed "Nicolo Amati" (ex-Collin of 1669).

Now based in London they enjoy a growing reputation, with a rapidly developing concert diary and recording career. In 2017 Ardorè Duo has recorded David Collins’ Violin Sonatas for Sheva Recording that obtained the highest mark in a review by The Art Music Lounge.

Particularly committed to modern and contemporary music, Ardorè Duo was dedicated compositions by composers from all over the world: Giorgio Astrei, Omer Barash, Eliza Brown, Daniele Carnini, David Collins, Caterina Di Cecca, Francesco Fournier Facio, Paolo Marchettini, Massimo Munari, and Michele Paradiso.

After a concert dedicated to Messiaen, at the 54th Nuova Consonanza Festival in Rome, Ardorè Duo was awarded the Premio Scotese for the best young performer of the Festival.

Both members are also independent musicians, each with a dual specialism in contemporary music and period instrument performance.

Rebecca Raimondi is Fellow of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where she studies with David Takeno and Jacqueline Ross. A laureate of many national and international competitions, Rebecca was awarded the “Excellentissimus” Prize by appointment of the President of the Italian Republic. She has played several concerti, performed in the London Symphony Orchestra and in the Academy of Ancient Music, and presented premieres of a number of solo works dedicated to her. In 2017 she premièred an inedited piece by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies.

Alessandro Viale is a Junior Fellow in Piano Accompaniment at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire, and a Professional Accompanist at The Guildhall School of Music. In 2015 he recorded the CD "Steps Volume 5: Sixteen Scenes before a Crucifixion" by Peter Seabourne for the label Sheva Contemporary which has been widely and positively reviewed in such journals as Piano News and Musical Opinion. He is also an awarded, broadcast composer in his own right, already with a film score to his name. He is also assistant conductor of Peterborough Sings!.

Considered one of the most promising proponents of contemporary music, Ardorè Duo is recognized for the vigour and depth of its interpretations, and the audacity of its programming. Over four years, with many concerts and a wealth of diverse projects behind it, the Ardorè Duo has developed into an intensely persuasive, dynamic and inspiring musical force.
