Brought together by a collaboration at McGill University in 2012, flutist Lara Deutsch and harpist Emily Belvedere immediately realized their unique musical chemistry on stage, as well as their mutual passion for performing chamber music.  Since then, Duo Kalysta has been sharing this passion with audiences throughout Canada and is quickly gaining recognition as a young duo with an exceptional connection. Their debut album, Origins, was released on the Leaf Music label in September 2019, featuring guest artists Alexander Read (violin), Marina Thibeault (viola), and Carmen Bruno (cello), and was named one of the “20 Favourite Canadian Classical Albums of 2019” by CBC Music.  

Recent performance highlights include concerts during the Kincardine Summer Music Festival, Jeunesses Musicales Canada’s Happy Hour series, the Pontiac Enchanté Festival, and an artistic residency at the Banff Centre. Duo Kalysta is also devoted to sharing their music outside of the traditional concert hall boundaries: in classrooms, cafés, as well as through various media platforms.  They have completed several video recording projects, mostly notably a set of eleven music videos produced by Mécénat Musica Vidéo, each of which is set in an unconventional location.  

Duo Kalysta is grateful for the support of FACTOR, the Canada Council for the Arts, and Mécénat Musica in their ongoing projects. 


Leur début étant marqué par une collaboration à l'Université McGill en 2012, la flûtiste Lara Deutsch et la harpiste Emily Belvedere ont partagés immédiatement une chimie unique sur scène ainsi qu’une passion pour la musique de chambre. Depuis, le Duo Kalysta fait rayonner son amour de la musique à travers le Canada, se démarquant comme un jeune duo avec un talent exceptionnel. Son premier album, Origins, mettant en vedette le violoniste Alexander Read, l'altiste Marina Thibeault et la violoncelliste Carmen Bruno, paraîtra sous l'étiquette LeafMusic en 2019. Paraîtra ensuite un album de sa tournée internationale en 2020.  

Récemment, on a pu entendre le Duo Kalysta au Festival de musique d'été de Kincardine, la série Concerts apéro des Jeunesses Musicales Canada, au Festival Pontiac Enchanté et au Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity lors d’une résidence en 2016. Le duo cherche également à partager leur musique dans des lieux moins conventionnels, dont des salles de classe, des cafés ainsi que diverses plateformes numériques. Mentionnons particulièrement leur série de onze vidéos musicales produites par Mécénat Musica Vidéo, chacune tournée dans un lieu inhabituel.  

Le Duo Kalysta est reconnaissant de l'appui généreux de FACTOR, le Conseil des arts du Canada et Mécénat Musica dans ses projets courants.

Trio Kalysta

Trio Kalysta was born in 2019 from a fruitful collaboration between Duo Kalysta — flutist Lara Deutsch and harpist Emily Belvedere — and Juno-nominated violist, Marina Thibeault, on the duo's debut album, "Origins." Recognized both for their "polish" and their "mad skills" (Robert Rowat, CBC Music), the trio champions the lesser-known but incredibly colourful repertoire written for its rich instrumentation, highlighting works by female and Canadian composers whenever possible.  Upcoming engagements include performances for the Regina Musical Club and the Haliburton Concert Series.
