The Cleveland Duo – Stephen Warner, violin, and Carolyn Gadiel Warner, piano – and Umble, classical saxophonist, have performed together to the major acclaim of audiences and critics for more than 15 years.
The ensemble has been heard throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico in major chamber music venues, festival sites, universities and of conservatories of music, temples, in special informative presentations for school children and over the airwaves of both National Public Radio and the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
Their unusual combination of violin, piano, and saxophone affords them a unique programming style which features a repertoire ranging from the traditional and familiar classical to folk, ethnic, avant-garde, and even jazz.
