The ensemble was founded by a group of four musicians that has always expressed the ambition to present a range of programs that alternate classical to contemporary music and open up new musical journeys where today’s composers can have new perspectives.

The ensemble also works in pop music collaborating to the incision of the album disco “Il signor G e l’amore” – a tribute to Giorgio Gaber – with the singer Rossana Casale.
