The Verbier Festival, now in its 26th year, presents 17 days of performances, master classes, talks, screenings, and education events.
The Festival runs from July 28 to August 3 in the picturesque setting of the Swiss Alps, with repertoire ranging from baroque to contemporary, including the world premiere of Three Lullabies for viola and piano by Thomas Adès, commissioned by the Festival.
The Festival’s mission is to encourage encounters between great musicians and young aspiring artists from around the world. Audiences witness these unique encounters and partnerships through the Festival’s program of concerts and free events set in the unrivaled surroundings of Verbier.
Summer 2019 features today’s most soughtafter musicians in its two main venues—the Salle des Combins and Église de Verbier.
The program includes 75 leading international artists who will perform solo, chamber, and orchestral concerts alongside the next generation of artists in the Verbier Festival Academy, Verbier Festival Orchestra, and Verbier Junior Orchestra.
Visiting musicians include András Schiff, Evgeny Kissin, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Leonidas Kavakos, Daniil Trifonov, Sergei Babayan, Vadim Repin, and Renaud Capuçon.
Music Director Valery Gergiev opens the Festival with violinist Kristóf Bárati and the Verbier Festival Orchestra; he’ll also conduct the eagerly awaited performance of Strauss’s Die Frau Ohne Schatten with Brandon Jovanovich, Matthias Goerne, and Nina Stemme.
