Why Violin and Piano?

The Obsidian Duo plays jazz, classical, and some popular music.  The versatility of violin and piano is the perfect choice for an event that requires different styles of music, such as classical music for a wedding and jazz music for a cocktail hour or reception.  Because the duo reads from piano scores, there is a wide selection of music available for special requests.

Unlike a string duo which can only play two lines of music, violin and piano gives a rich, full sound with only two instruments.  The violin gives the music a classical flavor.  The liveliness of the piano adds a fun element to pop and jazz tunes.

No Piano?  No Problem!

For venues with no piano or for outdoor events, we bring a keyboard.  Our new keyboard is a top of the line model that allows us to load a piano sound that was actually recorded from a concert quality piano.
