A little closer to the sky – PHOENIX at Swiss Alps Classics in Andermatt
The idyllic village Andermatt in the Alps is developing rapidly to the next cultural hotspot in Switzerland, with four music festivals, unique hotels and a spectacular surrounding. On June 3rd, I was honored to play my PHOENIX at the Swiss Alps Classics in the sold out Gotthard Hall of The Chedi. To compare this exclusive location with music, it is like the finale of Phoenix: virtuoso in every detail while emanating calm and sovereignty.
The festival team, lead by the Reichel family, offered me the ideal conditions to perform and most important, a fantastic Steinway D. It was a pure joy to discover it’s rich palette of colours and really “play” with it.
Many thanks to the artistic director Prof. Clemens Hellsberg for this perfect moment to revive!
