Far from the beaten paths of historic recreation, "The Music Salon" was born of the desire to liberate artists and spectators from the purified ritual of the concert where, separated as much by the proscenium as by a series of conventions going back to the 18thand 19thcenturies, we are no longer in a position to share the emotions conveyed by music conceived to be transmitted from one person to another. Faenza invented a concert “a la carte” in the proper sense of the term; with the help of a deck of tarot cards, the public is invited to compose a program that the artists will discover at the same time. 11 cards drawn by chance from a total of 22, the Major Arcana, including “The Lovers,” “The Hanged Man,” “Strength,” “The Fool”...  will transport the audience in a voyage across time and space, from surprise to surprise, in the course of an evening which will truly be unique.
