Who said there is nothing new in classical music?
Now there is - thanks to the Elanée Ensemble.
Combining a double bass and viola reveals a whole new array of sounds. Both instruments on their own have dark, resonant secrets and when combined, their rich sonorities entwine, seduce and amaze.
Even more when the doublebass is played

The rapport between these two fine musicians is magical and their repertoire challenges them technically & musically. Their humour and their shared love of music is infectious.
