26th of December 2020 We are very happy to have been integrated to the New Year’s Programme of the Museo Nacional de Colombia (Bogotá), continuing our transatlantic appearance virtually. Thanks to Nancy Avilán Dávila for her appreciation! The concert features the ‘Liebesfreud’ composed by the great violinist Fritz Kreisler. The official date is the 30th of December 2020, 12:30 local time: concierto 4M at Museo Nacional de Colombia. Apart being an incomparable virtuoso who enchanted the audience with a superb musicality and singing natural sounds, Kreisler was known to be a generous philanthropist. Many anecdotes tell about his humor and good heart. May his spirit accompany us in these days of love and reflection.
10th of December 2020 Teresa has received a special scholarship from the Berliner Senate (Senatverwaltung für Kultur und Europa) to maintain and, above all, to boost the career. We are very thankful and will use the financial means, amongst other things, to improve our ‘digital’ presentations. That everything is in the digital format today is a great challenge for classic musicians!
15th of November 2020 We have successfully prolonged our projects with the CACIM of Consell de Mallorca. Hope for a good 2021.
4th of August 2020 On the 2nd of this month we were very lucky to be invited to participate in the Beethoven concert series of Kulturfinca Son Bauló (Lloret de Vistalegre, Illes Balears)/the German Consulate in Palma de Mallorca. It took a great effort for the organizers build and execute the programs. Our special thanks to Will Kaufmann for writing a beautiful report after all the stress:

4th of April 2020 Corona is still dominating everything. Today we launch a new post page to document some important events out of our artistic life. The header image is taken from an oil painting on wood by Malte’s father Gerhard Kähler. He had wanted to become a painter. Having to teach Latin and Greek instead to earn his living, he dedicated himself to collecting art. May his spirit guide us on our pilgrimage towards our musical ideals.
Curiously, the German political magazine FOCUS samples our interview with the Mallorca Magazin to their online reader: FOCUS reader.
23rd of March 2020 José Menandro Bastidas España, who is editing the papers from the VII. International Seminar on Cultural Patrimony (2019), is completely excited that the eminent Colombian writer Pablo Montoya promised to contribute an essay on Franz Liszt. Malte’s paper will be about the piano technique of the beginning of the 20th century. We are looking forward very much to the publication.
31st of January 2020 Humberto Galindo of the Conservatory of Tolima (Ibagué, Colombia) told us the documentary videos of the VII. International Seminar on Cultural Patrimony (2019) are online. Malte featured one of the interviewed guests:
