Christoph Croisé and Oxana Shevchenko played the "Shchredin style of Albeniz" (music that was dedicated to the future wife of the russian compositor, the ballerina Maya Plisetskaya), a spanish-flavored piece of music with sounds of tango. Christoph Croisé is a world-known cellist (that plays on a Goffriller cello made in Venice in 1712) who is used both to attend famous concerts places (among others the Tonhalle Zurich, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Residenz Munich, the Capella St.Petersburg) and to have his work filmed, since several of his concerts were broadcasted live on radio and television. Oxana Shevchenko is internationally recognized as a pianist of remarkable sensibility, whose influences are among others Dmitri Alexeev and Martha Argerich. This duet performed in a "Musikinsel", an old monastery that was transformed into a complex that offers 16 rehearsal rooms.
