The Verbier Festival, created in 1994, rapidly acquired a reputation for artistic excellence and is now considered to be among the major European music festivals. During a fortnight each July, the greatest stars of the classical music world come together against the magical backdrop of the Swiss Alps.
The Verbier Festival gives musicians the opportunity to perform original programmes with fellow musicians they admire, but with whom they may never have performed before. These world première performances produce innovative and exciting results, as much for artists as for audiences.
In addition to artists of international renown, there is plenty of room for the artists of tomorrow. Through the Verbier Festival Academy and the Festival’s youth orchestra, talented young artists from all over the world participate in a creative exchange with the grand masters.
The result is a unique and convivial festival experience for some 40,000 concert-goers.
