Lina Tsiva, Greek flutist and Maria Rosaria Della Ragione, italian clarinetist started to play together in 2011, when they met each other in Utrecht conservatory. Both attending the master of music in chamber music, they starts to research about the repertoire written for flute and clarinet and when the notes starts to coming out like one warm and colored sound then it is clear that this combination can actually works.
