Jonathan den Herder is a versatile musician with a broad range of interest. After studying cello with Colin Carr and chamber music with the Emerson String Quartet, Jonathan has been working towards a degree in historical performance practice with Viola de Hoog. Some high points in his diverse carreer are world premiere performances and subsequent cd-releases of chamber music works by Scott Wheeler and Peter Winkler, and performances with the Cha Dan piano trio in
Carnegie Hall. 2011 has seen Jonathan performing Ligeti cello concerto with the Stony Brook Contemporary Chamber Players as well as appearing as continuo player at the Boston, Brugge and Utrecht early music festivals.

Chris Berensen is a freelance performer of early keyboard instruments. He received a University Postgraduate Award scholarship while completing a Masters degree at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music under the supervision of Dr. Alan Maddox and Philip Swanton and Dr. Neal Peres da Costa. Notable Australian ensembles he has performed with include the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Salut! Baroque, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, and the Marais Project. He has also participated in masterclasses with such celebrated early music personalities as Jordi Savall, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Wieland Kuijken, Eduardo Eguez, and Genevieve Lacey. One reviewer has written "Berensen's playing throughout was a revelation. The harpsichord, which can so often come across as one-dimensional in concert performance, yielded a whole range of tones and textures. Berensen's energy and commitment to the music was at all times elevating essentially supportive musical writing into surprisingly substantial artistic dialogue." (4th April 2008 TimeOut Sydney). Chris is also a composer, and was commissioned in 2008 by the Australian Viola da Gamba Society. The commissioned work, ‘Huygens' was published in 2009 by Orpheus Music. Its performance was described in a local review: "Chris Berensen's own composition ‘Huygens' was truly inspirational, and showed us what passion and practise can produce." (15th April 2008 Diana Ford N.S.W. Early Music Association). Other highlights in the area of composition include performing his own harpsichord concerto as part of his Bachelor of Music Hons. I., and winning a competition (Musica Viva, Australia) at age 15. Chris now lives and works in Leipzig Germany, meanwhile studying at the Hochschulefür Musik und Theater "Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy" pursuing his second Masters degree.
