Passepartout Duo


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

The work of the duo has been described as, “globalized and far-reaching and provocative and, yes, even beautiful” by the Lake Champlain Weekly. In addition to performing across dozens of countries and scores of US states, the duo has performed at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in England, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival in Connecticut, the Havana Contemporary Music Festival in Cuba, the KlangBasel Festival in Switzerland, the Dark Music Days Festival in Iceland, and the Summartónar Festival in the Faroe Islands.

The Duo was also selected as an ensemble to attend the Eighth Blackbird Creative Lab 2017.
