Petr Prause started to play the cello at the age of six and later studied at Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and at the International Menuhin Music Academy in Switzerland, and at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. From 1997 until 2019, Petr was a member of the Talich Quartet. He also joins other outstanding musicians in all kinds of chamber music formations and gives masterclasses at a wide range of international institutions. 

Petr Prause plays an exquisite cello Giovanni Grancino (1710) which he has on loan from the Czech National Museum Collection as well as a Martin Stoss cello, Vienna, 1821.

Gabriela Demeterová is an award-winning world-renowned international solo concert violinist and violist and a soloist for many world orchestras. The first Czech finalist in The Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition in 1987, and in 1993 the overall winner of all major prizes in that competition, Gabriela is the only person to ever achieve this accolade.
Gabriela plays a violin signed Giuseppe Rocca - Genoa 1855, Italian Violin Maker and Guarneri del Jesu 1743. The latter instrument has been lent to Gabriela by The State Collection of Instruments of The National Museum in Prague, Czech Republic.

He has worked with many eminent musicians and recent collaborations include Shostakovich, Schumann and Brahms piano quintets with the Callino Quartet in France, Spain and the UK.
