During 2020, celebrating the 250 anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, they performed the entirety of his works for cello and piano in several halls and festivals around the country.

In addition, they have recently created an interdisciplinary project, in collaboration with the actress Arántzazu Ruiz, dedicated to the diffusion of the work of nineteenth and twentieth-century women composers.
