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

In the course of its nearly 30-year history, the Verbier Festival has borne witness to countless promises made and fulfilled: auspicious young talents rising beautifully to the occasion, creating unforgettable moments and pushing themselves toward the pinnacle of artistry with all eyes (and ears) on them. Today’s programme is a tribute to the artists who have come of age in the era of Verbier—many through the Festival’s Academy— who have flourished and matured into seasoned performers on one of the world’s biggest stages.
We’re delighted to bring you a collection of those unforgettable moments from over the years, featuring musicians like Hilary Hahn, David Garret, Edgar Moreau, George Li, Vilde Frang, Kit Armstrong, Kirill Troussov, David Kadouch, Daniel Lozakovich, and more—consummate artists shaped by their experiences in the Verbier Festival’s cooperative environment, where established veterans and rising stars learn from one another as they make world-class music together.
