Verbier Festival: Best of 2014 will be available in a 2-CD set

Since 1994, the high-profile, high-altitude festival in the Swiss Alps has been a breath of fresh air for musicians and audiences alike, each year attracting a who’s who of classical music without losing the intimacy and community fostered in this uniquely inspiring locale.

Twenty years on, Warner Classics has captured this unique atmosphere of music-making with a double album of thrilling highlights from last year’s festivities — one of the first official Verbier albums ever to be released.

Pianists Martha Argerich, Evgeny Kissin, Daniil Trifonov and Jan Lisiecki feature along with cellists Mischa Maisky and Gautier Capuçon, headlining a long list in which living legends rub shoulders with the younger generation of luminaries.
