On August 6, 2016 at 7PM CEST (UTC+2) (that’s 1PM EDT in the US), in conjunction with The Violin Channel, will present a free live webcast from the 2016 Verbier Festival in Switzerland.  The webcast will feature Joshua Bell, violin; George Li, piano; Emmanuel Krivine, conductor [postscript: Joshua Weilerstein was the conductor,  although Krivine was originally listed on the announcement]; and the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra.  Here’s the program:

Saint-Saens: Piano Concerto No 2 in G Minor, Op. 22

Bizet: Symphony No 1

Saint-Saens: Violin Concerto No 3 in B Minor, Op. 61.

You can access the webcast at this link.

  1. Whoa, I didn’t know to count George Li among Candlelight pianists who had been featured at the excellent Swiss festival. Sorry I missed this, but as always, thanks for the rec.
