The Saltarello Trio

In this concert the lively Saltarello trio capture the colours and textures of folk music to inform their witty arrangements, highlighting connections and similarities that exist between soundworlds of today and of hundreds of years ago. The trio’s gorgeous swirling string lines and tasty percussion open a new window on old music, proving that a good tune can speak easily to all of us, no matter what the language, no matter when the time.
