Radiant of voice, the charismatic mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená returns to the Verbier Festival after a two-year absence. She is joined in an alluring programme of Debussy, Chausson, Ravel and Stravinsky by four instrumentalists, including clarinettist Martin Fröst. A regular visitor to the Verbier Festival, Fröst has been praised by James R. Oestrich of the New York Times for “a virtuosity and a musicianship unsurpassed by any clarinetist — perhaps any instrumentalist — in my memory”.
