The Verbier Festival is one of classical music's greatest events. In celebration of the festival's 25th anniversary, this unique concert brings together 36 classical stars in an unprecedented evening of ingenious programming and captivating performances. The line-up includes the world's greatest violinists, violists, cellists and pianists as well as other leading performers conducted by Valery Gergiev and Gabor Takacs-Nagy. Founder and director Martin T:son Engstroem writes: "We started this incredible adventure in 1994, and 25 years on, our Festival has become one of the world's most important cultural events. But it is not just another festival; our vision right from the beginning was to build something which combined important musicians with a very visible youth and learning element. This is what we set out to do and this is what we achieved."

"Among the most touching moments of the event is a six-hands Romance by Rachmaninov…in which Kissin and Trifonov are joined on the lowest part by the composer Rodion Shchedrin, now 85 but still possessed of a luminous touch and apparently effortless legato…For once, you didn't have to be there. It's just as good at home." Gramophone
