when they won the "Young Musicians of the Doelen"
competition in the Netherlands. Their performances have been
acclaimed by critics and audiences across Asia, Europe and
North America. While the duo's repertoire spans all of classical
music, from baroque to contemporary, the highlights of their
concerts are those electrifying moments when they perform
works inspired by the folk traditions of the countries of
their birth, Spain (Ms. Moliner) and Bosnia (Mr. Azabagic).

have approved. [The background music that introduced
