For its twentieth anniversary, the Verbier Festival puts Beethoven's orchestral works in the spotlight: following the Symphony No. 9, which opened the 2013 edition, Charles Dutoit conducts the composer's complete piano concerti, including the Choral Fantasy! The Verbier Festival Orchestra joins forces with six pianists of exceptional talent, among which five are the new rising stars of the piano. A unique opportunity to watch Louis Schwizgebel, David Kadouch, Adam Laloum, Denis Kozhukhin, Yevgeny Sudbin and Elisabeth Leonskaja perform on the same stage within a two-night period!
During the first part of this Beethoven series, watch and hear Louis Schwizgebel (a laureate of the Geneva Competition and the New York Young Artists Concerts), David Kadouch and Adam Laloum in the composer's first three piano concerti. Two real icons of the French piano young generation, David Kadouch and Adam Laloum have performed a few times at the Verbier Festival already.
