The Seasons

The Opening night of the 48th Annual Meeting features The Seasons, a world premiere ballet performance featuring La Scala principal Dancer Etoile Roberto Bolle performing with the Cameristi della Scala chamber orchestra.

The unique programme fuses Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Astor Piazzola’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires into a new work exploring the fine line between chaos and harmony in our relationship with nature. Composed by Edward Liaang and Massimiliano Volpini.

This performance is made possible thanks to the generous support of Intesa Sanpaolo.

The human voice is the organ of the soul

The Annual Meeting comes to a close with a powerful performance by the DAVOS FESTIVAL Chamber Choir, an ensemble made of some of the very best young singers from across Switzerland. The Chamber Choir stems from the annual summer DAVOS FESTIVAL which since 1986 has nurtured the careers of countless young talented artists from all over the world.

The programme features a composition by Dobrinka Tabakova, the composer in residence at the 2018 DAVOS FESTIVAL, as well as works by Thomas Jennefelt and Giacinto Scelsi.
