The Verbier Festival, created in 1994, has rapidly acquired a reputation for artistic excellence and is now considered one of the major European music festivals. For a fortnight each summer, the greatest stars of the classical music world come together against the magical backdrop of the Swiss Alps. The Verbier Festival gives musicians the opportunity to perform original programmes with fellow musicians they admire, but with whom they may never have performed before. These world premiere performances produce innovative and exciting results, for artists and audiences. The 2007 edition gathered classical celebrities such as Martha Argerich, Helene Grimaud, Gabriela Montero, Renaud Capucon, Nelson Freire, Mischa Maisky, Thomas Quasthoff and Lars Vogt, and for the first time all 46 concerts were recorded. The state-of-art recordings featured two cameras on stage that were remote-controlled so as to not disturb the audiences and artists and one camera in the midst of the audience to recreate the viewer's perspective. This video assembles excerpts of the most remarkable concerts with exciting programmes including works by Bartok, Debussy, Lutoslawski, Schubert and Schumann. Lovers of classical music will very much enjoy this summit of high-profile artists!
