A new upload - Rossini’s wind quartet from our new album LIVE
Getting ready for the summer
The summer is here and we have some hot news for you:
in exactly one month we will head to France and participate in the unique ‘Festival de Chaillol’ in the Alps in its 22nd edition.
We are invited to perform four concerts as part of the cultural exchange France - Israel.
The first one is dedicated to the Israeli composer Stephen Hornstein and it includes a premiere of a new piece he is writing especially for us for this occasion.
On the second concert we will continue celebrating the publishing of our new album, LIVE.
The program includes some of our most popular ‘hits’: Bach, Rossini, Weill, Piazzolla and of course Berio’s Opus Number Zoo.
To conclude our festival experience we will play a couple of unusual nature concerts for the local residences. They will take place in the beautiful surroundings of the area.
Forecast for the summer: cool...soon in the French Alps
