medici.tv has met with the tenor Rolando Villazón during the 2012 Verbier Festival, just before his Mozart concert with Marc Minkowski. He kindly answered our questions.
"It's a special thing for me to be here and to meet this two experiences: the natural one, and the artistic one. The one that is created by the man, and the one that is already here, nature. And that inspires the man to go into that direction and create for the human souls their onwn artistic mountains".
For the sixth consecutive year, medici.tv spent a few weeks in the station of the Swiss Alps to film and broadcast live on the internet the highlights of the world's famous festival. The perfect occasion to meet the artists and have discussions with them. The particularity of these interviews? You were the journalists!
