For their new album, ‘Carnival Fantasy’, the four exceptional musicians have taken their successful stage program into the studio. Like no other chamber music group, these four ladies from Germany have inspired fans around the world for the past 13 years with virtuoso playfulness, charm and humour that transcend the boundaries of genre and ventures off the beaten path of traditional classical music. ‘Carnival Fantasy’ is a firework of transformation, a playground for boundless joy and a celebration of unique, surprising arrangements – a trademark of the quartet.

Why did it take so long to realize this? The true heroes, the honored and adored subjects of countless classical works, are not obscure distant lovers, landscapes or heroic ideals – no, our animal friends are what inspired the great masters! Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov devoted his most popular piece (also one of the most famous classical works ever) to a bumblebee, Bach wrote ‘Sheep May Safely Graze’, Camille Saint-Saëns created an entire imaginary musical zoo in his famous ‘Carnival of the Animals’, Jacques Ibert composed a monument to a donkey. We can thank the Salut Salon ensemble, along with many others, for exploring this zoological side of music.
