    Soprano Anna Prohaska has been praised for her performances at the Salzburg Festival and Milan’s Teatro alla Scala opera house and is considered one of the most talented young singers of our time.




    The David Orlowsky Trio received the ECHO Klassik award in the category "classical music without boundaries". They describe their high-calibre and progressive musical style as "chamber world music".




    Latvia’s Lauma Skride is as respected a piano soloist as she is a chamber musician and makes regular guest appearances with renowned ensembles such as the Hamburg symphony orchestra and the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra.




    Come on board – and be enchanted.
