The generations of artists revealed by the Academy always come back to the Verbier Festival to play together. In a cello/piano recital, young talents George Li and Sheku Kanneh-Mason offer an intimate dialogue supported by both instruments’ most vibrant tones. The cello spreads out in the passionate Mendelssohn sonata while it gets dissolved and darker in Lutosławski’s Grave. Beethoven brings kaleidoscopic vividness to the piano, which then paints the impressionist purity of Debussy’s early 20th century colours. The shades slowly fade off in an Élégie incarnated by the cello’s melancholy.
