Since 2013, the duo has performed in public in several occasions in Belgium, Luxembourg and Spain. In 2015 they had the opportunity to work together with renowned composer Wolfgang Rihm and performed several of his works at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels with great success.
Duo Rosa recently launched its first CD Return (a journey between Europe and Latin America), under the label Et'cetera Records, at the Philharmonie Luxembourg in November 2016.
