Thoroughly Good Podcast 3.10: Verbier Festival Academy

Christian Thompson is Director of the Verbier Festival Academy – a residential training programme for exceptional young musicians.

In this podcast, recorded during my visit to the Verbier Festival in August 2016, Christian explains his vision for the Academy and its participants, and how the programme is developing the next generation of soloists.

The music featured in this podcast is the opening movement from Brahms’ first piano quartet, captured during rehearsals.
