Oskar Longyka (currently based in Ljubljana, Slovenia) finished his Bachelor of Arts in Violin performance in the class of prof. Vesna Stankovic-Moffat at the University for Music and Performing Arts Graz. As a part of Erasmus+ exchange program he studied one semester with prof. Igor Gruppman at Codarts, Rotterdam. He attended masterclasses and received violin lessons from, among others, Igor Ozim, Daniel Rowland, Grigory Kalinovsky, Peter Götzl and studied chamber music with Robert Nagy, members of Carmina Quartett (Stephan Görner, Matthias Enderle, Wendy Champney), Stefan Schilling (Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra) and Chia Chou. He is active as a soloist, chamber and orchestra musician. Besides performance of canonical repertoire of western classical music, he has experience in tango music (while studying in Rotterdam he took classes at the Tango department of Codarts), which he continues to play, mostly collaborating with the bandoneonist Tobias Kochseder. He is developing his interest in ethno and world music with the ensemble Trio Lumi, which can be heard on the album Tere Tere from 2021. As a member of the the .abeceda [new music ensemble], he regularly performs music by contemporary composers. He is also participating in educational and artistic programs of the .abeceda institute, most notably the Young Researchers V. program. For his studies in Graz, he received scholarships from the Municipality of Ljubljana and the foundation Viktoria. As of 2022, he is enrolled in a Masters of Philosophy program at the Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana.

Norwegian/Danish violinist Olivia Høilund-Carlsen Ruud (Oslo, 1995), obtained her bachelor’s degree in 2018 from NTNU Institute of Music in Trondheim, Norway with professor Anna Gebert. As an exchange student she did one year at the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg, Sweden. She also took lessons in folk music and hardanger fiddle with renowned fiddler Einar Olav Larsen. Since 2018 she is based in Stockholm, where she moved to study for her master’s degree with professors Per Enoksson and Mats Zetterqvist at Edsberg Manor/Royal College of Music. In 2020, she was accepted to the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra Academy, where she got lessons in orchestral playing, chamber music and audition training. Throughout her studies she has also had lessons and/or masterclasses with: Liza Ferschtmann, Isabelle van Keulen, Henning Kraggerud and Cecilia Zilliacus among others. Between 2020 and 2022 she was a member of European Union Youth Orchestra, with whom she has performed in several of the major concert halls in Europe, including Concertgebouw, Grafenegg and Elbphilharmonie. Since moving to Stockholm in 2018 she has worked with several professional orchestras in Scandinavia, and played with conductors and soloists such as Sakari Oramo, Gianandrea Noseda, Karina Canellakis, Alan Gilbert, Vilde Frang, Nicolas Altstaedt and Jukka-Pekka Sarasaste. Olivia loves playing chamber orchestra, and is since 2021 a member of Swedish Skallsjö Sommarorkester, and since 2023 a member of Italian AGON Ensemble. She has also worked with Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Trondheim Soloists and Norrbotten Chamber Orchestra, with whom she has had the pleasure of working with leaders such as Pekka Kuusisto, Antti Tikkanen, Gérard Korsten, Henning Kraggerud and Giovanni Gnocchi. Since 2023 Olivia has a permanent position in the Royal Swedish Opera Orchestra, and has a newfound love for opera music!
