In 2010, Anne Sofie von Otter joined the Verbier Festival Orchestra under the baton of Marc Minkowski to perform Canteloube’s Chants d’Auvergne. Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 ends the concert.
Experience a wonderful concert pairing 20th century French composer Canteloube with Mozart. Born in Auvergne, Canteloube immortalized his native region in the work Chants d’Auvergne (Songs of Auvergne), a set of arrangements for mezzo-soprano and orchestra of traditional songs. The beautiful work is followed up by Mozart’s Symphony No. 39, one of the composer’s most beloved works for orchestra.
