Hello everyone!!!

I've been thinking about putting up this topic for a long time here. Its a question for all of you, espacially for all masters and great magicians whom I was able to see here. What do you know about Salvano - one of the best magicians in the world, the prince of perfection and clean magic???

I am afraid all of you are not realizing who is he... you shouldnt overlook him!!! I don't know if the story I am going to write you is famous or not in America, but I remember when Salvano had a show ( probably both - close-up and stage ) in Magic Castle. For his goodbye in 1985 Salvano was accompaning by Dai Vernon and some other younger magicians. Then Mr. Professor kissed Salvano's hand. He explained that had been watching intensively since 1982 what those hands were able to do and he deserved it completly for this favoritism and respect by him (Dai Vernon)...
What do you think about it ????

P.S. I am not in the 'inside' track in the magic word but, don't you think this guy would be famous? If Dai Vernon liked him, I would think he would be a 'house hold' name for magicians.

Kissed his hand? I find the story very, very surprising! Sure doesn't sound like anything the Professor would do, or any American for that matter. That would be more of a European thing. Vernon was never very excitable or expressive like that. If it is true, it must have been quite something special.

Do you know who any of the "younger magicians" there for that event at the Magic Castle were? I have never heard this story, and would like to hear more about it.

I am very honored that Mr. Haydn replied to my post. Unfortunately I don't know whose those magicians were, because this story I read in a polish book about polish stars in magic ( to name a few: Bellachini, Horacy Goldin, Max Malini, Richard Ross, Edward Marlo was also a polish and of course between those shining stars the most brightest sun - Salvano ).

This story is for one hundred percent authentic, if I meet together with the author the next time, I will ask him about it... I think the best way is to ask the prestident of the Magic Castle about Salvano's show there... let me know if you get some more informations. I would be very thankful.

Have you been at FISM 2000 in Lisbon??? Salvano took standing a ovation and during Paul Daniels lecture, when someone asked him who - in his opinion - is the best magician in the world he answered them, that Cardini and Salvano. Cetrainly we know that Cardini has already passed away...

Igor,

Are you talking about the same Salvano that taught the real work on the center deal to Allen Kennedy?

Just wondering.

I had the pleasure of watching Salvano three times at The Magic Circle's Christmas Show, and I think he's got one of the best acts I've EVER seen (if not the best)!

It's polished, slick, strong, and he's got the best dancing cane there is - not too long, slow, graceful, and none of this whirling it round his head / body, which I think exposes the method.

Brilliant!

Landmark: I am not sure we are talking about the same one... I didn't understand you completly, but you can ask & check in a good magic shop for "A Day With Salvano" by Losander... its a new video tape produced and directed by Losander ( levitation stuff... )

MarkFarrar: definitely I agree...his act its not for copy by anyone, its so hard, so perfect but looks very simple and very easy.... I am a pianist and I know what it means to practice and prepare, for example, Mozart pieces - a lot of details... I think I can call Salvano's Magic Mozart Magic with so many details, Liszt because of his technique, Chopin's beauty and very elegant as Paderewski's style.

Ok... maybe I am too excited, but nice to hear some similar opinion from you Smile thanks...

Ciao Smile

Igor, where online can we find out a bit about this person of whom you speak so highly?

The professor is no longer around to verify your story.

As a community we are almost always looking for great talent to appreciate and respect.

IMO, Salvano's stage act is one of the finest and classiest manipulation acts of all time. He's one of my all time favorite magicians. I think there is a performance video by Stevens Magic Emporium with his act. Try to see it if you can.

I've been following this thread with interest... I've never heard of Salvano before and yet it is being said that he may be one of the greatest magician ever! Is Salvano still alive and performing regularly?

Invalidity: yes, he is stll alive and performing, maybe not as often as couple years ago ( he had many operations which were very dangerous for his life ). He is about 72-75 if I am wrong, sorry....I don't remember exactly, but the most popular "manipulation" program with wine, cards etc. you can easily find in Stevens Magic Video Library: "Fabulous Acts of Mystery Men" together with Paul Daniels, Ali Bongo etc. etc....some video tapes you can find in European magic shops, in France where he produced the best videos I have ever seen about magic...whats more... hmm.... recently we had an occasion to see him in London about 2 weeks ago ( Magic Circle Christmas Show ). After more than 50 years in magic he still produces wine glasses like doves from thin air but much much better than anyone Smilehehe....magically...

I just located a video from the Magic Warehouse:

This looks interesting. I didn't know it existed. Here is the actual ad:

Sensational Acts Of Mystery Men $20.00

Classic Routines - Original Illusions - Manipulation At Its Best - Exquisite Showmanship
Sensational Acts of Mystery Men showcases these fabulous and legendary acts that have stood the test of time...over and over again...all over the world!

Seven different effects by seven magical performers are certain to please everyone who views this performance video. Though not a lecture video, one can learn the art of stagemanship and timing-see professionals performing their classic acts and in all cases their original routines as well.

See Charlie Miller take the classic rice bowls and without saying a word make it an entertaining piece of magic. Watch Jay Marshall's favorite friend, "Lefty" whom we never tire of seeing. Enjoy Marvyn and Carol Roy's-better known as Mr. and Mrs. Electric-dynamic, high energy act that has played all over the world. See top illusionist-Hans Moretti and his famous "Fir Tree" Levitation. See Great Britain's top magical entertainer-Paul Daniels' great routine with "Sidewalk Shuffle." And Europe's fabulous Salvano and his award winning act. The premiere dove act in the world-second to none-Shimada. This is a video you will enjoy with well over one hour of magical pleasure.

International Magic also has a live lecture video of the man himself.

It is an excelletnt resource for classic magic performed exactly how it should be, and for some wonderful misdirection teaching all you need do is watch him.

I was turned on to Salvano a couple of years ago, by a Belgian magician/ friend named Luc Apertz. I'm thankful for it. Salvano is a classic performer, and a very natural one at that. His moves are very motivated, clean, and elegant.
He has some videos put out be the Greater Magic Video Library. I recommend them. Although his performing style does not fit mine, Salvano has inspired a number of things that I do. He is surprisingly "unfamous", but definitely worth a look.

Just wanted to say I have also had the pleasure of seeing Salvano's act. I saw it quite a few years ago at the Blackpool magic convention in the UK.
He is a fantastic performer with a very polished and classy act.
I think we could all learn a lot just by watching this master of our craft at work.
Cheers,
Matthew
