London - a European city of music
There are 61 years between Yehudi Menuhin's meeting with Edward Elgar in 1932 and his appointment as "Lord Menuhin of Stoke d'Abernon" in 1993. Although Menuhin was a citizen of the world, his biography revolved around the metropolis of Great Britain throughout his life. It was here that the young Menuhin (born 1916) developed his musical and personal identity, and from his first visit around 1930 he was taken by the open-mindedness and tolerance of the people. With his second wife, Diana Gould, he finally settled definitively in London in 1959, incidentally at the same time that they built the chalet "Chankly Bore" in Gstaad. After Menuhin's death, he found his final resting place in the garden of the Yehudi Menuhin School he founded in Stoke d'Abernon.
The Menuhin Festival is best experienced at the Bernerhof!
The Menuhin Festival is an unparalleled success story. This long tradition will be continued for the sixty-fifth time in the summer of 2021. With this year's theme "London", artistic director Christoph Müller is once again attracting many well-known musicians to Gstaad.
The personal favorites of Intendant Christoph Müller:
July 18: The legendary chamber orchestra from London, the "Academy of St. Martin in the filds," makes its first guest appearance in Gstaad, together with star violinist Julia Fischer
July 19: The phenomenal a cappella ensemble "Voces8", 8 singers in perfection, together with the Artist in Residence, Daniel Hope, give a guest performance in the church of Saanen.
July 24: Handel's "God Save the King" with the euphoric pompous "Anthems" (title melody of the UEFA Champions League) with the charismatic Hervé Niquet and his choir and orchestra "Concert Spirituel" from Paris
As well as the support program "Menuhin Heritage Artist" presents in summer 2021 four fascinating new artists to be supported for the next 5 years: Bomsori Kim (violin) on 7/30 and 9/4, Lucienne Renaudin-Vary (trumpet) on 8/11, Nemanja Radulovic (violin) on 8/19, Alexandre Kantorow (piano) on 8/20 are not to be missed!
