Passepartout Duo
出身地・活動地:USA / Italy

Through the creation of interdisciplinary collaborations and immersive musical events that thrive at the intersection of different cultures and aesthetics, pianist Nicoletta Favari and percussionist Christopher Salvito have earned a reputation together as advocates for contemporary classical music as they continue their years-long journey around the world. Influenced by their ever-changing location, the duo commissions new repertoire, composes original pieces, and films music videos that seek to capture their interpretations in a creative and engaging format.
