With their breakthrough in 2002 in their hometown Hamburg, the headline in the German newspaper "Welt am Sonntag" proclaimed: "A Quartet is Born"! Since then, the four musicians of Salut Salon have swept concert audiences off their feet on all five continents, drumming up a huge fan base with more than 120 concerts annually in Europe, North and South America and Asia. Their YouTube mega-hit version of Vivaldi's "Summer", played as a musical competition, has attracted over 20 million views - a success any pop star would be thrilled to claim.
Perhaps more than any other of today's chamber-music ensembles, Angelika Bachmann (violin), Iris Siegfried (violin and vocals), Anne-Monika von Twardowski (piano) and Sonja Lena Schmid (cello) have found the knack of seducing the most diverse audiences with passionate virtuosity, instrumental acrobatics, puppetry, irresistible charm and a great sense of humor. As Germany's newspaper "Allgemeine Zeitung Mainz" put it: "No one stirs up a stew in the genre so charmingly as Salut Salon. Their enthusiasm for extraordinary pieces is so contagious that even the biggest classical-musical dunce will become a fan." Salut Salon embraces an astonishing range of styles. Listen to these musical "power women" moving effortlessly between tangos by Piazzolla and Lecuona's Malagueña, while savouring arrangements of Mendelssohn, Bernstein, Brahms, Mussorgsky, Saint-Saëns or the themes from Hitchcock's Psycho. Salut Salon is redefining the very idea of chamber music.
LOVE - What you`ve always wanted to hear about love
At Salut Salon, everything is about the oldest pastime in human existence, the thing that has inspired composers since the birth of music - LOVE. From 2017 to 2019 Salut Salon are on tour with their new program. The quartet feels that "Love is what it's all about". And their music is bursting with it: Salut Salon play with all facets of the greatest hobby in the world combined with a large dose of humor. The ECHO prize winners go beyond genre boundaries, performing pieces by Sergej Prokofiev, Astor Piazzolla, Bach, Vivaldi and Rachmaninov as well as their own arrangements.
Among them, chansons exploring the deeper meaning of love. They ask questions like "How deeply can one love without coming up for air?", give possible answers (based on Erich Fried's famous poem) "It is what it is...", get melancholy with "I love you too much", an old Jewish tango that Salut Salon sings in Plattdeutsch and bring their own versions of the most famous songs in pop history, from Marilyn Monroe to Herbert Grönemeyer, to the stage.
