Salut Salon go wild on tour with their 'Carnival Fantasy' concerts in Hamburg

The quartet turned Internet sensation show their prowess in live concert with a playful animal-themed programme.

Following a rather unconventional launch performance surrounded by elephants and flamingoes at the Hamburg Zoo, the ladies of Salut Salon will play the first in a series of 'Carnival Fantasy' concerts tonight, at the historic Thalia Theatre in their hometown of Hamburg.

The hardworking quartet will give ten concerts in that city between the 15th and 26th of July, before heading on the road in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, with further dates on the horizon for France and the US.

Titled 'Carnival Fantasy', the animal-themed programme unveiled tonight brings all Salut Salon's humour, charm and virtuosity to bear on classical favourites reinterpreted with a twist, from Saint-Saëns' Carnival of the Animals to Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the bumblebee — all in the quartet's unique signature arrangements — along with Salut Salon's own compositions.

They will explore the same repertoire on a new album slated for release in early 2016.
