Hailed for extraordinary technical skills and musicianship and their "special feel for the music and a sense of communication that could not be missed," the members of ARTefact are at the forefront of their respective fields, yet play together "as if this was something they had been doing for a quarter of a century," the Calgary Herald writes. Based in Canada, ARTefact views the ensemble as an opportunity to present pieces from the broad and vivid repertoire for clarinet, violin, cello and piano from all periods, and as a fount of varied, versatile repertoire for smaller combinations within its instrumentation, including piano trio, clarinet trio, instrumental sonatas, duos and solos.
