LET GO AND GIVE UP YOUR EGO

Verbier Festival Academy, an introduction to chamber music by Gábor Takács-Nagy and Heinrich Schiff

Chamber music is central to the ethos of Borletti-Buitoni Trust. For this reason it is fitting that BBT has supported Verbier Festival Academy since 2006.  Filmed in Verbier in July/August 2007, Heinrich Schiff (BBT Honorary Committee member) and Gábor Takács-Nagy (Professor of Chamber Music, Verbier Festival Academy) illustrate the role and importance of chamber music.  BBT Winners Jerusalem Quartet, Vilde Frang and Quatuor Ébène tell us the value of the festival and academy for them.

The Academy Quartet featured were Eduard Kunz piano, Vilde Frang violin, Barbara Buntrock viola, Leonard Elschenbroich cello.
