In 1984 the Austrian chansonnier, guitarist and author Peter Horton and the German-Bulgarian concert pianist Slava Kantcheff met and fell in love. A human and musical journey of decades to this day, which began in 1985 on the occasion of an appearance on Thomas Gottschalk's TV show “Na Sowas” with the piece “Freaky Fingers”, worked out within a week and then they threw themselves into the live broadcast. They then appear in almost all renowned TV shows at home and abroad.
Within a short space of time, a concert repertoire was created that, for the first time in music history, combined the acoustic instruments guitar and piano both in terms of composition and interpretation as an equal body of sound: a unique tonal language that is characteristic of the virtuoso duo. Peter's compositions are concertante handicrafts full of virtuosity, poetry and tenderness with all the spices of popular world music and the input of classical music.
