She is the perfect embodiment of the “big family” of Gstaad Menuhin Festival & Academy. Basel-born violinist Anna Schultsz has been working with the Gstaad Festival Youth Orchestra as Konzertmeisterin since 2019 and is invited this year as part of the mentor programme launched by her teacher Julia Fischer, with whom she is studying in Munich. A beautiful recital ahead, a journey through almost three centuries, from classical Mozart to modern Ravel (in gypsy mode), via romantic Saint-Saëns.
