The word "Divites" is Latin and means "rich". In this case it characterises the sound of this duet.
This duo is a revolution in the world of classical violin duo.
We can say that the sound of two violins, two equally high and melodic instruments, was in the judgment of humans as something that could not compete with other instrumental duets. But not in our case! We break this stereotype!
Our duet sounds like an orchestra thanks to brilliant, highly professional arrangements! And we have always heard that from our audience.
Through the rich, emotional and intense sound, the virtuosity ... , the incredible synchrony through 10 years of playing together, this duet leaves a strong impression. And we prove that at our concerts.
Our concert repertoire consists of works originally written for the symphony or chamber orchestra, piano or other instruments. And our goal is not to lose this tonal power, but to reproduce and convey the composer's idea as true to the original as possible.
After each concert, we hear from the audience that it has heard many more instruments than two violins. Sometimes even organ.
At the moment we are the only violin duet in the world that sounds like a whole orchestra.
We play with maximum energy, with love for every single note and leave no indifferent person in the hall.
Each of our concert works is a precious diamond with a facet.
Some of our concert arrangements are published in one of the largest and most influential music publishers in the world - the Bärenreiter Verlag, and the scores are sold successfully around the world.
In addition to a powerful presence, we can also restrain our mood.
But that's not all!
Violin & "cello"
We have something special- very rare and exclusive violin- the Bass Violin! This is the latest development in the world. This is a violin with special bass strings!
It looks like a normal violin, but sounds like a cello !!
That's why we also offer a duet, absolutely classical, popular duo - violin and cello!
Bass-Violin & singing saw
If you are a fan of something special or would like to surprise your guests, then we have another unusual instrument.This is a traditional american folk instrument- singing saw. The sound of this instrument is similar to a female opera voice - soprano, but with a metallic tone. With accompaniment of Bass Violin, this combination sounds incredibly beautiful and unique!

More and more requests are coming in as a solo violinist or in ensemble-band. Marta com- ments about her values and ambitions:
“I play with pleasure in various musical styles like classic, rock, pop, progressive metal, but clearly distinguishing between each performing style and the manner of playing.
Music is an international language of human emotions and experiences, an expression of feelings and thoughts.
In each style, you can take the most important thing. In the classics is the violin technique and the beauty of sound, the depth of thought and emotion. In rock and pop music is a feel- ing of rhythm-groove. In metal, music is tension and quintas with quarters)”
Vladimir is a man of music transcending the melody! He is the prince wiel- ding his violin as a triumphant standard. (Jose Alfaro)
