Outstanding artists, most of whom are themselves active in international concert life, pass on musical values ​​of the Viennese sound and performance style, including all important traditions and schools. In today's professional environment, which makes great demands on individuals and requires equally great flexibility, the central concern  of keyboard instrument programmes is to convey the musical and interpretational competencies as well as the  technical abilities necessary for a successful musical career.
