Passepartout Duo, a collaboration between musicians Nicoletta Favari (piano) and Christopher Salvito (percussion), have sought to revitalize the contemporary music through immersive events, compelling music videos, and interdisciplinary projects that emphasize blurring cultural and aesthetic borders. Striving to be catalysts for the global mobility of art and artists, Passepartout Duo has taken the works of emerging and established composers all over the world. They complement the existing and commissioned repertoire with their own original compositions often taking inspiration from their travels.

While in Key West for their residency, the Duo presents a live set featuring some new compositions inspired by their time on the island. During their set, Nicoletta and Christopher take the time to explain their music, instruments and composition process. In doing so, they create a democratization between audience members of different ages and backgrounds.

Ever since they began collaborating in 2015, the musicians of Passepartout Duo have sought to revitalize the forms and practice of contemporary music through immersive events, compelling music videos, and interdisciplinary projects that emphasize blurring cultural and aesthetic borders.

Striving to be catalysts for the global mobility of art and artists, Nicoletta Favari (piano) & Christopher Salvito (percussion) have taken the works of emerging and established composers all over the world. They complement the existing and commissioned repertoire with their own original compositions often taking inspiration from their travels. Creating compelling films that document their interpretations and compositions, they seek to showcase contemporary classical music in accessible formats through online videos.

But at the center of it all, the work of this two-year-old duo boils down to a single common theme: two people proving over and over again that artistry exists without barriers of any form. The common expectations for a pianist and a percussionist playing truly contemporary duets fit a particular stereotype, one that the duo shatters daily with modern music that is globalized and far-reaching and provocative and, yes, even beautiful.”
