Four outstanding instrumentalists who first met in Verbier collaborate in different configurations in three Romantic chamber works. This concert represents the third joint appearance by Yuja Wang and Gautier Capuçon at the 2020 Festival, while Martin Fröst, who makes the most eloquent case for the clarinet as a solo instrument, has established himself as a favourite with Verbier audiences,  The Swedish violinist Daniel Lozakovich, still in his teens, has been praised by the Boston Globe for possessing “poise, tonal purity, and technique to spare,” while Le Figaro has spoken of “Perfect mastery. An exceptional talent.”
