Pretty, a virtuoso managed musical diversity of style, the offers a by Róbert Farkas led a small Ensemble of color. The mouse fantasizes sounds of the Gruffalo with Tango. That may be the summit of the wickedness in the healing world of Classical music – the real horrible laughter he makes with a Heavy Metal rhythms resound. Long-haired, pierced and motorcycle gap, Christoph Brunner (Bass) is a blend of a rock musician, a not unattractive Image of Evil. Prior to that, you have to learn to take good care of.
