Animo is a Contemporary Classical flute and piano duo that perform soulful timeless music

Animo = spirit, mind, emotion, intent, feelings

Sarah and Yanna launched Animo in Gloucester Blackfriars in October 2019. Since October 2019, we have created the most ambitious five-year 'new music project' commissioning composers worldwide to write music specifically for us. 

Animo are all about performing soulful music with a myriad influences which means that since June 2020 Animo is officially 'Declassified'. Our performance style is inclusive, open, fun and laid back. We thrive in creating a connection with our audiences.

During the pandemic, Animo went to work, started new projects, performed a weekly 'Tuesday live at 12:45' live-stream from our home studio, recorded our 2nd album 'ANIMO two' from which the first releases are due in June 2021, opened our online merch shop at Bandcamp, recorded our new music video and short film at St George's Bristol, and we are now in the final stages of our composition commissions. 

ANIMO can tailor music to suit all audiences and ages. For samples of programmes and our repertoire, please have a look at the Performance webpage

"What a wonderful sound! I closed my eyes and took it all in. Just beautiful! "


"...The beauty of the building, however, was then surpassed once you and Sarah started playing. You are the most wonderful duo and it was the most exciting evening, to listen to such unique music which was played to such a high standard. Every piece was elevating and enthralling to listen to. Thank you too for the delicious canapes and warming glass of mulled wine. The whole evening was a joy to be at, totally inspiring. Thank you very much once again."
