Música Romântica

8 - 17 August 2018

Música Romântica, the warm and welcoming festival

Both today and in the past, Saas-Fee is associated with the highest mountains, eternal ice, deep canyons and an unmistakable, authentic atmosphere. Música Romântica is as unique as this landscape, the village and the people themselves.

The highest musical performance in the middle of the highest mountains of Switzerland. In this chain of superlatives there are other pearls too, such as several restaurants listed in the Gault & Millau guide, the incomparable glacier skiing, the breath-taking mountain flora or the freedom from cars.

“Eliane Rodrigues is inextricably linked with Música Romântica. The festival would be unthinkable without her contribution and has therefore been built around her amazing (and seemingly unlimited) creative potential.

“Eliane Rodrigues, top star of Música Romântica, the heart and soul of the entire festival, has already proven her amazing, unrivalled individuality in piano concerts, chamber music programs and on the conductor’s podium. Her virtuosity is astonishing, as is her complete inner freedom, her energy. Eliane’s gift is very special and it makes the festival in Saas-Fee unique and inimitable.”

Yuri Serov, Professor at the Saint Petersburg Conservatory
