These festivals within the Festival enable to put a few artists under the spotlight. The first weekend showcases the multi-talented cellist Henri Demarquette as both soloist – in a recital pairing Johann Sebastian Bach’s eternal Suites with those of British composer Benjamin Britten – and chamber player in a concert entirely dedicated to Ludwig van Beethoven. On the next weekend, Quatuor Modigliani proposes a two-concert immersion into the early romanticism of Franz Schubert and Felix Mendelssohn, which the ensemble specialize in. As for Laurence Equilbey, after her triumph at last year’s festival, she returns at the head of her Insula orchestra for a diptych of concerts highlighting the symphonic art of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Franz Schubert.
