Virtuosas - from Classic to Crime scene

Salut Salon redefine the conventional chamber music concert

The Salut Salon quartet, Angelika Bachmann (violin), Iris Siegfried (violin and vocals), Anne-Monika von Twardowski (piano) and Sonja Lena Schmid (cello), know better than any other chamber music ensemble how to seduce their audience with passionate virtuosity, instrumental acrobatics, charm and a great sense of fun. They combine whatever can possibly be combined with their beloved classical music: tango, chansons, folk and film soundtrack – with virtuosic solos, cabaret-style show with artistic sketches, all with effortless flair and disarming self-irony. Salut Salon perform far beyond what concert-goer would expect of a conventional chamber music concert, take aficionados of this genre by surprise and those who would otherwise never go to a classical concert, too.
