Passepartout Duo: collaboration

Leave a comment

Coming soon: I’m so excited to hear my new piece Mimesis for piano and percussion which has been composed for the Passepartout Duo following a fruitful period of collaboration. Before I met them, I watched some videos on their website which I found to be entertaining, innovative and visually intriguing. I have tried to compose something that will be equally theatrical and musically engaging.

Passepartout Duo:

Ever since they began collaborating in 2015, the musicians of Passepartout Duo have been known for their tireless advocacy of new music, ideas that cross aesthetic boundaries, and the compelling films they create. Driven by their shared values of music, people, and travel, Nicoletta Favari & Christopher Salvito’s simple and elegant approach has already earned them a reputation as a thoughtful and promising emerging group within the contemporary music field.
