Olof and Albin met for the first time in 2011, as high school students at the Little Academy's Music High School in Stockholm. They already played music together at that time and went on a tour and exchange to Mexico. At the time, they were both part of a quartet.
Olof, who has since studied at Edsbergs Slott, first as a candidate and then on to a master's and advanced course, has had Mats Widlund and Mats Zetterqvist as teachers and taken lessons from Professor Tuija Hakkila.
Both Olof and Albin have participated in the Pole Star Prize, a competition that Albin won in 2014, which gave him a ticket to the international competition "Eurovision Young Musicians", which was broadcast live from Cologne, in all European countries. After studying at the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" in Berlin for Professor Tabea Zimmermann, Albin is now back in Stockholm.
Only in recent years have Olof and Albin, in connection with their studies at Edsberg Castle, started to explore the repertoire for viola and piano together.
