Duo Furioso consists of prize-winning young cellists Helena Švigelj and Urška Horvat from Slovenia. They started playing together during their postgraduate studies in Belgium in 2013, where they made many appearances on stage including two concerts at Fêtes de Wallonie in 2013 and 2014. In July 2015 they debuted in beautiful Union Hall in Maribor at Festival Lent, one of the most prestigious festivals in Slovenia.
