Les Deux


Busking in Central Park, New York City

"Semes and Smith are unarguably gifted performers with a keen ear for arranging.... There's nothing these two won't tackle.  Their excitement to engage in both the familiar and the unknown presents an engaging and highly enjoyable listening experience."

-- The Examiner

"Les Deux breaks down the boundaries that our art form has unconsciously set up. Their sound is pristine and they have a portfolio of very intelligent arrangements. And more importantly, they have the stage presence and charisma to sell their musical gifts."

-- James Gaffigan, Chief Conductor of Lucerne Symphony Orchestra & Principal Guest Conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic

"Vivacious!"

1. a virtuosic crossover violin duo that performs original arrangements of favorites from Chopin, Debussy, and Ravel to Benny Goodman, Beatles, and Bernstein. 

2. a modern artistic collective dedicated to bringing “alt-classical music” to all audiences in a way that sparks imagination and excitement.

3. a name drawing inspiration from the artistic collective of the 1920s, Les Six, a group of six French composers working in Montparnasse, Paris whose avant-garde simplicity is often seen as a reaction against the heavy romantic and lush impressionistic styles of their day.

4.  two in a long line of famous duos (and like any true great pairing, one without the other would be one too few):  Lucy + Ethel, Barbie + Midge, Peppermint Patty + Marcie, Wilma + Betty, Alice + Trixie, Betty + Veronica, Laverne + Shirley, Tina + Amy, Kristen + Maya, Thelma + Louise, Cher + Dionne, Rachel + Monica, Mary + Rhoda, Paris + Nicole, Oprah + Gayle, Kathie Lee + Hoda
