The musicians complete actually them studies in distinguished Conservatory like l’ESMUC in Barcelona, Haute-Ecole in Genève, Musikhochschule in Freiburg und CNSM in Lyon. The ensemble consists of two recorders, a baroque cello, a theorbo and a harpsichord.

They have also been invited to play in Pedro Memelsdorff’s Masterclass in Antwerpen for the IYAP 2009 and also with Jesper Christensen for the “Förderpreis March 2010“ in Saarbrücken, and in the Festival Oude Muziek in Utrecht as Fringe ensemble in 2008, 2009 and 2010. 2017 in the festival du Pays du Mont-Blanc.
