The violin-piano duo, Duo Odéon, formed in 2014 as violinist Hannah Leland and pianist Aimee Fincher were completing their doctoral studies at Arizona State University. Hannah and Aimee's mutual passion for twentieth century and contemporary music brought them together. Now they perform, research, and present the music of the American composer George Antheil along with other early twentieth century American composers. Their mission is to bring underperformed, often unpublished, music to new audiences in  inviting and unconventional environments.
