Did you know that the conductor Gábor Takács-Nagy is a big soccer fan? Comparing concerts with matches, he sees himself as the team captain: “With the best football team players and the best chamber musicians, the individuals in the group make the others around them into better players collectively” (Gramophone). For this concert in Verbier, Gábor Takács-Nagy channels the synergy between the exceptional soloist Lawrence Power and the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra. A team that is sure to win!
