The sound of the unusual combination of clarinet, viol and piano fascinated many great composers. The merger of dark, noble and sensual tones with brilliant, virtuosic and melodic expression allows this ensemble to produce varied and diverse soundscapes and to abduct the listener into unusual lyrical spheres. Konstantin Selheim is among the most sought-after instrumentalists of his generation. After studying violin at Hannover University of Music and Theater, in 1996 he began viola studies with Volker Worliizsch and Hartmut Rohde. He has been strongly influenced by Tabea Zimmermann, Rainer Moog, and Yuri Bashmet. The pianist Katharina Sellheim shows a remarkable musical versatility. She gets engaged as a soloist, chamber musician, and accompanist regularly. She gives recitals in the important musical centers of Europe, such as Vienna Berlin, and Paris, as well as cities worldwide. Hungarian-born Lazlo Kuti grew up in a musical family and began playing in a brass ensemble as a child. He went on to study at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz. He is a winner of the Concertino Praga International Music Competition, and performed as a young soloist in Prague, Vienna, Graz, and Japan.
