Gstaad Menuhin Festival & Academy
Maestro Giovanni Antonini leads the orchestra Il Giardino Armonico, who perform on period instruments alongside the extraordinary Patricia Kopatchinskaja—live from the Kirche Saanen in the 2022 edition of the renowned Gstaad Menuhin Festival!
The tailor-made concert by violin virtuoso Kopatchinskaja reflects her daring and innovative artistic approach. Featured works include Vivaldi’s celebrated concertos for violin and orchestra, including the superb La Tempesta di Mare—taken from the same series of twelve concertos as the Four Seasons—as well as several rare works by contemporary Italian composers Luca Francesconi, Salvatore Sciarrino, Aureliano Cattaneo, and Giovanni Sollima.
