The B&B duo was born as a result of the artistic concern of professors Javier Berná (Clarinet) and José Miguel Barona (Fagot) to perform an interpretive work beyond the classrooms, but to enrich the pedagogical work of these two young musicians .

The CONTRASTS project was born from this musical concern. Through the timbral combinations of the veiled and sweet sound of the clarinet and the vibrant and dark sound of the bassoon, a chronological sound recital is offered in which original pieces by great composers of history such as Beethoven, Mendelsshon, Bozza, Poulenc are performed but that are not found in the audience's auditory memory.

CONTRASTS is, therefore, an innovative recital that satisfies musical curiosity and opens its sound range to the listener.
