20 years of virtuosity, wit and international success: for two decades, Salut Salon have been able to captivate audiences like no other formation - irrevocably, from the very first note. With virtuosic joy of playing and sparkling humor, artistic instrumental acrobatics and enchanting charm, Angelika Bachmann (violin), Alvina Lahyani (violin), Mara Kochendörfer (cello) and Kristiina Rokashevich (piano) transport entire concert halls into a world of their own, into surprising, unfamiliar, utterly magical realms of music.
Because whatever can be combined with the classical music they love so much, the four musicians combine it: from tango and chanson to folk and film music, from singing saws and poetic puppetry to Vivaldi with kung fu. As confident as they are self-deprecating, Salut Salon go beyond the boundaries of classical concerts, and even more: they amaze lovers of this music - as well as people who would otherwise never set foot in a concert hall in the first place.
There is hardly any comparison for the success of Salut Salon: the quartet has collected numerous prizes, including an ECHO Klassik award. The instrumental-acrobatic adaptation of Vivaldi's "Summer - Competition for Four" went viral and now has more than 36 million views on YouTube. Above all, however, Salut Salon tours all over the world, through Europe, Israel, the USA, China, Kenya, Korea and South America - always including moderation in the respective national language.
