This musical group is truly a joyful friendship of like-minded, passionate musicians who are able to communicate their musical ideas masterfully both with each other and with audiences who enjoy their high quality music-making. Two high talented virtuous young musicians with an experienced professional pianist deliver ardour, excellence, dynamic interpretation, sensitivity, virtuosity, offer wide range of repertoire and a unique sound colour.
