Kristjan & Neeme Järvi, Conductor

These musicians are also very much part of the family: the brave “ambassadors” of the Gstaad Festival Orchestra founded in 2010, buoyed by the talents of the Järvis, father and son. Before parting for their next concert tour, they have prepared a delightful programme filled with Italian delicacies: from Vivaldi’s Baroque Venice to romantic portraits painted by Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky, not to forget the adventures of “Harold in Italy” by Berlioz featuring Renaud Capuçon on the… viola!
