Jane has a longstanding duo partnership with the Philadelphian violinist, Timothy Schwarz. The Anglo-American Duo specializes in American and British repertoire. They have performed extensively in Europe (Italy, Greece, Hungary, Austria) and throughout the UK and America. They have broadcast on Radio Libera Tutti and Vatican Radio in Italy and on WFLN (NPR) and WHFC in America. Their CD, Anthems after Prometheus’ on Albany Records, features music by David Osbon who also happens to be her husband and was acclaimed in Fanfare magazine:
The Anglo-American Duo exhibit their solid technique and imbue it with great sensitivity. Anthems After Prometheus is an excellent collection of David Osbon’s fascinating compositions played by musicians of great virtuosity’+
