They share a wonderful rapport amongst themselves and with their audiences."

Prize-winners at numerous competitions, the trio has premiered new works written especially for them and performed at the Adelaide International Guitar Festival alongside internationally renowned artists Pepe Romero and Slava Grigoryan.
