Aperçu du document
My programming philosophy at the Verbier Festival is to make each and every concert an
event. A unique event you will not come across elsewhere. Either the combination of artists
will be new, or the artists will be asked to perform a work for the first time. My responsibility
is to create an environment in which the artists will feel comfortable enough to go beyond
their comfort zones. To try new boundaries. And hopefully the artists but also the audiences
will leave Verbier feeling enriched by the experience. This has been my credo at the Verbier
Conceiving the program for the 20th Anniversary Gala was a real challenge. Our 10th
Anniversary Gala was a big success so the pressure was on to do something different and at
the same time artistically fulfilling. I had 39 of the greatest musicians of our time in Verbier
and didn’t want to put the spotlight on any one musician since they are all important for us.
Given that chamber music has always been an important part of the Verbier Festival, for the
first part of the program I chose a unique combination of artists performing movements of
ensemble works. For the second part of the concert I had the idea to perform Chopin’s 24
Preludes with different artists for each prelude. This quickly became a fun and at the same
time challenging task. I turned to my friend Dmitry Sitkovetsky who is a Master in
transcriptions. He was open for a challenge and transcribed almost half the Chopin Preludes
to either violin, alto, cello, clarinet or string quartet. It was a hit! I am grateful to all of our
wonderful and generous artists who went along with this idea and helped to celebrate the
first 20 years of the Verbier Festival in style.
