German String Quartet Performs Vivaldi & Mozart in Delightfully Comical & Acrobatic Routine

Making the rounds on the internet is this performance by the German string quartet Salut Salon. Featuring Angelika Bachmann (violin), Iris Siegfried (violin and vocals), Anne-Monika von Twardowski (piano) and Sonja Lena Schmid (cello), the quartet knows "better than any other chamber music ensemble how to seduce their audience with passionate virtuosity, instrumental acrobatics, charm and a great sense of fun." Above you can get your week started by watching them perform a mash-up of Vivaldi, Mozart, and Kurt Weill. And to keep your day going, you can always watch 2Cellos banging out a version of Guns N’ Roses "Welcome to the Jungle" and this 14-year-old girl playing a blistering heavy metal performance of Vivaldi. Enjoy.
