Charles Dutoit conducts Tchaikovsky and Brahms – With Martha Argerich Verbier Festival 2014

About

Martha Argerich and Charles Dutoit open the Verbier Festival 2014, with a concert webcast live on medici.tv. For the first time in ten years, Martha Argerich will perform Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1.

Martha Argerich has been dominating the piano scene since the 1960s thanks to a wide and varied repertoire, never conformist. Her phenomenal technique and great sensitivity have allowed her to stamp her mark on the most demanding works of the repertoire. She is very familiar with the Verbier Festival, and she will open the 2014 edition with the famous Concerto for piano No. 1 by Tchaikovsky, with conductor Charles Dutoit, musical director of the Verbier Festival Orchestra.

This long-awaited opening concert of the Verbier Festival 2014 presents Tchaikovsky's Concerto for piano No. 1, and Brahms' Symphony No. 1. (Beethoven's "Tenth," according to Hans von Bülow).
