Produced in 2014 by the Independent Label Forgotten Records, publisher of rare works, it is produced under the artistical leadership of Alexis Galpeine. Sharing the same vision of classical music, which must be embodied in our time and numerous human values, they offered in May 2014, at the Cultural Centre of Provins, a caritative concert dedicated to the creation of a school in Kenya. In July 2015, they were selected by the prestigious international academy of duo violin-piano of Lausanne, supervised by Pierre Amoyal and Anne Queffélec.
