14th Zermatt Music Festival & Academy, 7–16 September
Three concerts with Piotr Anderszewski / The mountain comes to the museum in the form of an ‘In Sturm und Eis’ exhibition and a screening of the Arnold Fanck silent film with live musical accompaniment
Without a doubt, the main event at this year’s Zermatt Music Festival will be the three special concerts given by the Polish pianist Piotr Anderszewski: one with a solo recital, one with chamber music, and one with orchestra. The pianist, about whom director Bruno Monsaingeon has made no less than two award-winning films, will get the ball rolling on 7 September with Mozart’s Overture to the Marriage of Figaro, Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, and Symphony No. 38 in D major (Prague Symphony). It is worth noting that Piotr Anderszewski released a CD of Mozart and Schumann fantasias in 2017, a CD of Mozart concertos in early 2018, and a CD of Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 3 & Quintet with the Belcea Quartet in April 2018. Mozart’s piano concertos are an exceptional series of works in the history of music and are a fascinating musical tableau of shadows and light.
A passionate and elusive perfectionist, Piotr Anderszewski demonstrates once again the full scope of his mastery and his personality in this new recording of Mozart’s piano concertos. Anderszewski is one of the greatest living interpreters of Mozart, which led the New York Times to write: ‘It is sometimes very difficult not to use all existing superlatives in conjunction with a pianist of Piotr Anderszewski’s calibre, his sensitive touch and the power of his imagination’.
