All musicians are active as soloists, chamber-music players, music teachers and they organize musical projects. The repertoire of the ensemble is quite extensive - from baroque to the contemporary music. It consists of adaptations as well as original compositions for this ensemble. The ensemble introduced plays of several Slovak composers (Juraj Beneš, Ilja Zeljenka, Peter Kolman andothers). The ensemble cooperated with world-famous composer Sofia Gubajdulina. They introduced her pieces (quartet, septet and octet) during Melos Éthos festival in 2003.
