Bio


The ensemble was established by accordeonist Boris Lenko in 2001, and since then it has performed in concerts at home and abroad. In the times of its foundation it was focused mostly on the work of Astor Piazzolla, but successively it expanded its repertoire with works of Slovak composers (I. Zeljenka, J. Iršai, M. Burlas, P. Zagar, M. Piaček and others). The quartet artistically cooperated with numerous soloists (Eugen Prochác, violoncello, Róbert Ragan, double bass, Matúš Trávniček, bass voice, and others).

In 2012 the ensemble introduced itself a concert in the Small Hall of the Slovak Philharmonic within the cycle New Music. Between 2013 and 2014 it performed in numerous concerts in Slovakia, where it presented mostly works of their second CD, which includes songs by Slovak composers on Jewish themes. The ensemble made recording with the baritone singers Martin Babjak and Róbert Roth.
