Lyda Chen Argerich studied violin at the Conservatoires of Geneva and Beijing with Ayla Erduran and Lin Yao Ji. She discovered viola only later. Her musical path leads her around the world, performing with artists such as Martha Argerich, Mischa Maisky, Ivry Gitlis and Emile Naoumoff. Only lately has Lyda started her soloist career.


Born in Naples, Italy, Fabrizio von Arx studied violin in his native city with M° Leone. His career started at the age of 16 playing with the RAI Ochestra that promoted him on the national and international scene. Since then, he plays soloist with famous orchestras (Prague, Padova, Berliner Symphoniker,…) and, in 2005, he toured China with the pianist Roberto Prosseda.


Born in 1974, Julien Quentin, a French pianist, started his studies at the Conservatoire of Geneva with Alexis Golovine. Working and teaching in Bloomington (USA), he was awarded the Presser Award and, in 2003, he received the diploma at the Julliard School of New York. Julien Quentin now performs as soloist or with chamber music groups throughout the world and participates in major festivals such as Verbier, Lucerne and Gstaad. His multiple skills have lately lead him to the musical world of improvisation and electronic music.
