This summer, the Verbier Festival celebrates its first quarter of a century! Like every year, artists and audiences will come together to be part of incredible music in the heart of the Alps. The 2018 festival program features an astonishing array of the international scene’s greatest classical musicians. From the opening concert led by star maestro—and the Verbier Festival Orchestra’s new Music Director—Valery Gergiev, to the 25th Anniversary Gala, this year’s festival is made up of one not-to-be-missed event after another, to the delight of music lovers everywhere! New this year, in addition to the more than 29 concerts streamed live, medici.tv will offer a livestream of a rehearsal of one of the symphonic concerts, and will webcast selection of master classes with Sir András Schiff, Richard Goode, Gábor Takács-Nagy, Thomas Quasthoff, and other brilliant pedagogues... 


The “Folle Journée” (“Mad Day”)! July 25th is sure to be full of surprises as the festival celebrates its 25th anniversary! For this big day, medici.tv is planning 10 hours of uninterrupted livestream(!), beginning with an exciting recital by Andrei Ioniţă and Seong-Jin Cho and followed by an interview stage where behind the scene videos and live conversations with this year’s artists will be interwoven with archival footage from past festivals. The day closes with an extraordinary gala concert. Although the concert’s program remains a secret, the all-star artists who will perform are not... imagine Evgeny Kissin, Sir András Schiff, Yuja Wang, Sergei Babayan, Mikhaïl Pletnev, and Daniil Trifonov all together on one stage!
