In the wonderful settings of the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern and the Carignano Theatre in Turin, exceptional musicians such as Alexander Lonquich, Cristina Barbuti, and the Camerata Bern orchestra, will deliver a unique performance, where the classicism of Mozart and Beethoven interacts with new contemporary scores by Cyrill Schürch—winner of the first edition of the Mario Merz Prize—and Willy Merz.
The orchestra members will donate their professional fees to Doctors Without Borders-Italy and the Swiss Refugee Council, and encourage the audience to follow suit and also show their support.
