The Duo consists of violinist Christina Åstrand and pianist Per Salo who have been making music together for more than 25 years. Their repertoire ranges from the earliest classical music over the substantial romantic literature to the newest contemporary pieces. Åstrand and Salo’s passion is the large repertoire for violin and piano, and they are known for their ability to create versatile programs in which the classical masterpieces are reflected in the Danish repertoire as well as in the lesser known music from the 20th century. Their concerts always have a main theme, and they love to tell historical facts and stories about the music.
Both musicians also have an extensive career as soloists. They both have positions in The Danish National Symphony Orchestra – Per as a pianist and organist and Christina as a concertmaster, a position she has held since 1993 from the age of 22.
