Discover the programme of the Virtual Verbier Festival on medici.tv—partner of the Festival since 2007: 18 virtual days in the Swiss Alps with your favourite artists from July 16 to August 2.

The Verbier Festival has long delighted in the vocal versatility of Thomas Quasthoff, traveling effortlessly between lieder, sacred music, and jazz. His distinctive, exquisite baritone has enchanted Festival attendees across a wide variety of repertoire, with unforgettable concerts dedicated to the work of composers like Schubert and Schumann; and in 2015, the Verbier Festival’s Founder & Director Martin T:son Engstroem invited Quasthoff to make his conducting debut with Bach’s St Matthew Passion, a career milestone. On this day of the Virtual Festival, sit back and marvel at the depth and power of one of the most unique and multifaceted voices the Verbier Festival has known!
