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.
« As Passepartout Duo, we have always endeavored to propose a music bare of categorization. Combining elements from our conservatory roots alongside those we encounter within communities throughout the world, our mission is to advocate for new music and the composers that create it. Commissioning and performing new works for the piano-percussion instrumentation is an essential part of our practice, and we see music not only as our medium, but also as a means to create something larger. We supplement our performance schedule with the creation of short-films, interdisciplinary collaborations, and original compositions that often take inspiration our travels. »
