Salut Salon’s performance is all about the phenomenon that has inspired composers down through the ages: love. For the German musicians who make up this all-woman cabaret-like quartet, love is what it's all about - and so is their music. They touch on every aspect of the world’s most universal language and intersperse their musical interpretations with a healthy dose of humour.
While they lovingly step beyond the traditions of classical music with their own arrangements and chansons about the deeper meaning of love, their renditions of works by Prokofiev, Piazzolla, Bach, Vivaldi and Rachmaninov are just as playful. They ask questions like ‘How deeply can one love without coming up for air?’, give possible answers (based on Erich Fried's famous poem) to ‘It is what it is..", get melancholy with ‘I love you too much’, sing an old Jewish tango that Salut Salon in Plattdeutsch, and bring their own versions of the most famous songs in pop history, from Marilyn Monroe to Herbert Grönemeyer, to the stage.
Warning: if you don’t give a hoot about love and think that classical music is only a serious business: don’t attend this concert ;-)
