A big part of our work is the co-operation with composers in order to constantly grow the repertoire for mandolin and guitar. Within the three years after our first recording Chilli con Tango with contemporary music we could already enthuse more than twenty further composers from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, South-America and the USA about our duo. The result has surpassed our expectations: music of highest quality with a tremendously broad spectrum of styles. This recording represents a cross-section of the music that has been written for us during the last three years.

"Virtuosity, witful playing and rhythmical fire"
Akustik Gitarre, June 2004

"A really completely successful production, sensibly played on a high level, finely harmonized, perfect balance, very transparent and exciting. And this programme must enthuse all lovers of plucked chamber music."
Dieter Kreidler

This CD was supported by the "Sparkasse Bergkamen Boenen" and published by "Antes"
