„Emese, Madeleine and Marius are dedicated and highly skilled artists; with technical and sensitive refinement already in their young age.“
The Romanian clarinetist Marius Birtea, the French cellist Madeleine Douçot and the Hungarian pianist Emese Wilhelmy started playing together in 2017 in Salzburg, where they studied at the Mozarteum University with Clemens Hagen, Alois Brandhofer, Imre Rohmann, Cordelia Höfer-Teutsch and Matthias Bartolomey, and quickly decided to promote the seldom played repertoire for their formation, founding the Trio Tempora.
