Two projects closely associated with the spectacle of the Fête des Vignerons 2019, an extraordinary event that ran from 18 July to 11 August 2019 in Vevey (Switzerland), attracting 375,000 spectators, went on sale a few days ago.
The long-awaited double CD with the music performed live by a choir of almost 900 voices and 240 instrumentalists during the 20 performances of the show; music by Maria Bonzanigo (principal composer and musical director), Jérôme Berney and Valentin Villard. Maria Bonzanigo is the first female composer in the history of theFête des Vignerons and is the first woman to have produced the arrangements of the traditional Ranz de vaches.
“Through the music, I would like to reawaken memories and make the imagination soar. I would like to give a form to the sounds that we still perceive as familiar, but which come from a distant time. I would like to give depth to that image, bringing to life the reality that we dream.” Maria Bonzanigo
