For her first venue at the Verbier Festival, the Finnish soprano performs with two regular guests. First melody after Charles Baudelaire’s poem, L’Invitation au voyage literally initiates the journey its title suggests, before taking us away into Brahms’s famous and melancholic Lullaby (Wiegenlied) and the musical transcriptions of Théophile Gautier’s poems.

Though star artist Evgeny Kissin usually plays in instrumental chamber music concerts, he provides an accompaniment for Karita Mattila’s singing tonight. This edition’s last “Rencontre Inédite” would be incomplete without the renowned “Kreutzer” Violin Sonata, which highlights a wonderful, expressive and generous dialogue between the violin and the piano.
