Maybe only in the Verbier Festival’s ‘Rencontres Inédites’ series would you expect to find such a line-up of instrumentalists. A special welcome awaits Nelson Freire, last heard at the Festival in 2012, who joins Kristóf Baráti and Mischa Maisky for Brahms’ Piano Trio No 1. It follows three French works: Debussy’s mercurial cello sonata (performed by Ralph Kirshbaum and Julien Quentin); Poulenc’s incidental music to Jean Anouilh’s play L’Invitation au château (for which Martin Fröst joins Baráti and Quentin), and more Poulenc – his bittersweet clarinet sonata (Fröst and Quentin).
