About

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.
