About

Experience a musical voyage into the eye of the hurricane with this Verbier Festival concert featuring Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, "Pastorale" and excerpts from Wagner’s Siegfried.

Manfred Honeck, musical director Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra, Gábor Takács-Nagy, and the Verbier Festival Orchestra present a fine performance of Beethoven’s "Pastorale" Symphony and Wagner’s melancholic Siegfried. Described by Berlioz as, “astonishing countryside that seems to have been designed by Poussin and drawn by Michelangelo,” Beethoven’s Symphonie Pastorale mirrors the beauty and power of nature, while Siegfried sends us into the mythical and wild environs of Nordic legend. A captivating concert threaded with the unbridled energy of a tempest.
