"Around the World"


It is a simple formula: The artists explore the whole world of music, from classical to traditional, from soundtracks and musicals to the most famous Italian and international pop music, exploring rhythms and sounds that are unusual for a string quartet. This is a ‘descriptive’ and entertaining concert, presented with verve and charm, and the tunes are interspersed with tales about the cultures of the countries visited. The concert is enhanced by moving scenic designs that make this virtual voyage even more interesting.

The PICASSO STRINGS QUARTET are famous for their skill, versatility, stage presence and elegance. The quartet is made up of professional musicians from all over Europe, headed by the violin performer Saule Kilaite. Over the last ten years the group has played numerous concerts and performances as well as collaborating with the most important Italian and international artists, including: Laura Pausini, Eros Ramazzotti, Cesare Cremonini, David Guetta, Michael Bublé. They have also made countless appearances on all the foremost Italian TV channels. They were the musical stars of 175 episodes of the live programme “Italia sul 2” on Rai 2 (Italy’s second public TV channel) and after this experience they decided to create a particular and entertaining concert based on various genres of music.
