Through Christoph’s younger sister, Luise,
who was Emir’s pupil, a close friendship developed
between the two musicians and the name of the duo was born.

The two artists attach particular importance to the cultivation of a matched sound concept
and strive to play in a style appropriate to the respective musical era.
