Tamás Schlanger graduated in percussion from the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music and then became the timpanist of the Óbudai Danubia Orchestra and the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra. In addition to orchestral playing, he increasingly turned towards chamber music and is currently working with several international contemporary music ensembles. He is a regular performer with the Ostravska Banda and the Quasars Ensemble, and also collaborates in concerts with the Insomnio Ensemble and the MIKAMO Central European Chamber Orchestra. He is currently a member of the UMZE Chamber Ensemble but frequently joins the Amadinda Percussion Group as well.

The Sonus Cordis (Heartbeat) ensemble was founded by Artisjus Award-winning violinist Eszter Krulik in 2019. The members of the ensemble are passionate about the fate of contemporary music, regularly presenting new works while being open to transitions between different eras and styles. They regularly perform at important venues in Budapest and in 2022, they were awarded the Filharmonia Végh Sándor Scholarship. Their programs feature a variety of setups, ranging from duo formations to full chamber music ensembles.

The diverse program to be presented, the special instrumentation, and the theme of touch all contribute to blurring the boundaries between early music and contemporary music. The theme frames the pieces performed at the concert in such a way that allows us to think differently about both contemporary and 20th-century music.
