The Verbier Festival Academy is renowned for its capacity to find and support talented young musicians from the world over, as was the case with George Li and Sheku Kanneh-Mason. Li won the Tchaikovsky Competition’s Second Prize for Piano and Kanneh-Mason melted the hearts of millions with his performance at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle -and this is his first time on medici.tv ! Returning to Verbier, the pianist and violinist juxtapose works by Beethoven, Debussy, Mendelssohn, and Lutosławski in an intimate musical conversation.
