Esther Beyer and Mina Middleton initially began playing together as members of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain in 2015 and 2016. However, it wasn’t until they both started studying at the Royal Academy of Music that they began playing together as the Equinox Duo. Since then they have performed in concerts across England. Appearances include the Buxton International Festival (2021), an evening soiree concert for the Barnes Music Festival (2019) and a recital of recent works for flute and harp, including a new commission by David Nunn. Future engagements include the Hambleden Concert Series (2022) and recording another new commission by Nunn. Excited by contemporary music, the duo hope to continue commissioning new music for the ensemble, working with emerging composers and broadening the repertoire for the duo combination.
