Bryn Terfel appears courtesy of Deutsche Grammophon.

The DG’s long-standing partnership with the Verbier Festival also includes audio releases with excerpts from the Festival archives.

The most celebrated sopranos, tenors, basses and countertenors on the international lyric scene bring their talents to the Verbier Festival! Verbier has always resounded with the voices of soloists of the highest level, performing selections from the best-known operatic repertoire—Nina Stemme’s Wagner, or Rolando Villazón and Bryn Terfel taking on Mozart—as well as beloved song cycles, like Berlioz’s Les nuits d’été sung by Joyce DiDonato and Johann Strauss’s Voices of Spring with Pretty Yende. You’ll also love discovering some rarely heard gems—like opera and songs by Debussy with Magdalena Kožená and Barbara Hendricks, or delicate French melodies interpreted by countertenor Philippe Jaroussky. Fall under the spell of the world’s most beautiful voices, direct from the Swiss Alps!
