FESTIVAL WEEKEND 1

It is Beethoven's only opera - but what an opera it is! As a musical plea for freedom and fidelity, «Fidelio» is a gripping affirmation to eyes and ears that the basic values of human coexistence are worth upholding and defending. At the centre of this brilliant coproduction between the Gstaad Menuhin and Grafenegg Festivals are Jonas Kaufmann as Florestan and Sinéad Campbell-Wallace as Leonore. Jaap van Zweden, Chief Conductor of the New York Philharmonic, conducts the renowned Swiss festival's orchestra at the Wolkenturm.
The music of Beethoven also features on Monday's programme, when the French pianist David Fray makes his debut with the Tonkunstler Orchestra. He has been a model of uncompromising music-making for several years, appearing regularly with the leading orchestras of Europe and America. The exciting period-instrument orchestra Anima Eterna Brugge under the direction of Pablo Heras-Casado gives the opening weekend's matinee concert. Hear Bruckner's Seventh Symphony with fresh ears - on instruments of the composer's time!
