Erato presents one of Europe’s most celebrated classical events – the annual Verbier Festival – releasing an official album for the first time, presenting highlights from the thrilling 2014 concerts. Since 1994, the high-profile, high-altitude festival in the Swiss Alps has been a breath of fresh air for musicians and audiences alike, each year attracting a who’s who of classical music without losing the intimacy and community fostered in this uniquely inspiring locale. Twenty years after the first festival, the 2014 edition was no exception, with pianists Martha Argerich, Evgeny Kissin, Daniil Trifonov and Jan Lisiecki, along with cellists Mischa Maisky and Gautier Capuçon, headlining a long list in which living legends rub shoulders with the younger generation of classical luminaries.
