For his second performance at the Verbier Festival 2011, Lars Vogt interpreted the Piano concerto No. 16 by Mozart and the Nocturne No. 20 by Chopin under the baton of the Hungarian conductor Gábor Takács-Nagy. Vogt succeeded in combining the intricate rhythm of the German composer's Concerto with the "lento con grande espressione" of Chopin's Nocturne.
A regular, like Vogt, of the Verbier Festival, Gábor Takács-Nagy opened the concert conducting the Verbier Festival Orchestra in the "Overture" of the opera seria Lucio Silla by Mozart, and closed the programme on the freshness and spontaneity of Beethoven's Symphony No. 4.
