Gábor Takács-Nagy and his inimitable smile are back at the Verbier Festival this year! Discover the maestro's first two concerts at the 2021 edition, live from the gorgeous Salle des Combins. Under his faultless direction, the prestigious Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra accompanies two fabulously talented soloists in their Verbier debuts: violinist Josef Špaček and pianist Mao Fujita (an alumnus of the Verbier Festival Academy)! On the program: Mozart's virtuosic Violin Concerto No. 3 and Piano Concerto No. 20 (one of the only piano concertos Mozart composed in a minor key), as well as Beethoven's mighty Eighth Symphony, structurally innovative and reminiscent of Haydn in the humorous flourishes strewn throughout.
