The opening concert of the "Jubilee" year of the Engadin Festival is a birthday concert in a class of its own:
80 years of Engadin Festival, 80 years of Martha Argerich and 85 years of Charles Dutoit. These two grand masters have shaped the music world in recent decades like few others. Together with Janine Jansen, one of the outstanding violinists of the younger generation, and her daughter, the actress Annie Dutoit, they will open the Festival´s anniversary celebrations with a program commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of Igor Stravinsky. Janine Jansen and Martha Argerich will interpret the "Suite italienne," composed on a Baroque model, and in the second part Charles Dutoit will conduct the fantastic musical theater piece "Histoire du soldat." It tells the story of the soldier who sells his violin and with it his soul to the devil. How and if he can save himself from this situation, and if he gets the princess, you will find out in this evening that unites three of the greatest living musicians.
