the first European festival on creativity

2014 Programme

Event #37

Salut Salon

The Night of Fate

With a piano, two violins and a cello, the classical quartet Salut Salon – which includes Angelika Bachmann, Iris Siegfried, Sonja Lena Schmid and Anne-Monika von Twardowski – enjoys fascinating and amazing the public with a concert of its own kind that unmasks musical conventions thanks to an impassioned virtuoso, incredible instrumental acrobatics, and all done with a great sense of humour. These four German musicians, along with their mascot Oskar, bring to Italy for the first time ever a lively, fun performance that explores the world of classical music – from the Mephisto Waltzes by Franz Liszt to the frenetic Dance Macabre by Camille Saint-Saëns – and tells the stories of “fate” by combining tango, milonga, chansons, folk and film soundtracks. Perfect solos and artistic sketches worthy of the best cabaret, of explosive style and formidable self-irony.


Salut Salon

are a classical music quartet from Hamburg: Angelika Bachmann (violin), Iris Siegfried (violin and voice), Sonja Lena Schmid (cello) and Anne-Monika von Twardowski (piano). Angelika and Iris, who started playing together for the school orchestra when they were 11, first had the idea for the group. Joined in 2008 by Sonja Lena and Anne-Monika, Salut Salon take with them around the world their very personal musical style (classical virtuoso together with a blend of musical genres, acrobatics, dance steps, theatrical skits) performing in 120 concerts per year, and hugely successful on YouTube as well (with more than 8 million hits).
