Notes & Reviews:

The Verbier Festival is one of the most prestigious classical music events, thanks to an outstanding programming in the gorgeous Swiss Alps framework. For the 15th edition of the Verbier Festival, which took place from July 18th to August 3rd 2008, Medici Arts filmed the majority of the concerts, which were proposed during the 17 days of the festival in the Salle Medran (2000 seats) and the Verbier Church (500 seats). Some of the best performers in the world of classical music came together - Martha Argerich, Nikolai Lugansky, the rising star Yuja Wang, the violinists Joshua Bell, Julian Rachlin, or the cellist Mischa Maisky - this "best of" Verbier Festival offers the most amazing performances of the 2008 edition of the festival.
