Music... As one of the few professional recorder-accordion duos, we have been dedicated to the performance and fostering of contemporary music for over 15 years. Numerous works of the still very small repertoire for this special instrument combination have been commissioned by us and are created in close collaboration with young composers from all over the world.
In addition to New Music performances, our activities include working with young composers, lectures and composers workshops at various colleges and cultural institutions, interpretation courses and educational workshops for music educators and young ensembles. With our latest project FRISCHLUFT we create new music for student ensembles.
