Mariel Kreis in conversation with the artists at 7.15 pm (in german)
Risk is everywhere, every day. Right now, even. The risk of stumbling over a somewhat uncommon name. Kopatchinskaja, for example. But in this case, we can turn it to our advantage. The violinist of the same name is by far and away the most risk-taking musician that we know. Ms. Kopatchinskaja (go on, risk another attempt at pronouncing it…), who has recently taken over artistic direction of the Camerata Bern, concocts the type of programme that would initially make others wince, as you have no idea what to expect. The one thing you can be sure of, though, is that the public will love it. So for us, there is zero risk.
