The creation of the Chianti Ensemble took place after a tour of chamber music concerts in the famous Tuscany region: five musician friends, brought to play together thanks to a happy set of circumstances, willing to explore this musical encounter further. The configuration of the ensemble – a classical piano quintet – allows Shin Sihan, Yamen Saadi (violins), Takehiro Konoe (viola), Alexander Warenberg (cello) and Nathalia Milstein (piano).
