Christoph Eschenbach is one of those exceptional musicians, capable one evening of conducting an orchestra and choir through Beethoven's Ninth and the next of performing as a pianist in a chamber music concert. Alongside Renaud Capuçon, he will perform Beethoven's Spring, one of his more playful sonatas. They will be joined by Alisa Weilerstein, the virtuoso cellist from New York and by Gérard Caussé, a festival regular, and together they will present the enchanted sounds of Mozart's String Quartet No. 1 in all its fluency and iridescent colours.
Finally, these exceptional musicians will come together to play Schubert's The Trout, the joyous masterpiece, written when the composer was barely twenty-two.
