Rolex Celebrates Music With A Free Classical Concert Series
Covid-19 has severely impacted the performing arts with the closure of theatres and other performance venues. But this pandemic has also taught us how important the arts is, offering us respire from all the anxiety. To show its appreciation for the musicians and singers who have brought us much joy, Rolex is debuting a concert series this week called "Perpetual Music".
“During these difficult times, when musicians have suffered both the loss of audience and income, our aim is to provide them the opportunity to perform with renowned artists at prestigious venues with the finest acoustics,” said Arnaud Boetsch, Rolex director of communication & images.
Renowned opera singers and Rolex Testimonees Juan Diego Flórez, Rolando Villazón and Sonya Yoncheva will be joined by French violinist Renaud Capuçon in organising this auditory feast, which will unfold in three prestigious locations across Europe.
The "Perpetual Music" series, which will be live streamed and available for free viewing until the end of October on medici.tv, kicks off on Aug 22 with celebrated tenor Diego Flórez performing in Tietro Rossini, Italy, followed by lyrcial soprano Sonya Yoncheva Sept 2 (MYT) at the Berlin Staatsoper, before ending on a high note with tenor Rolando Villazón and violinist Renaud Capuçon performing repertoire of baroque and chamber music at Opera National de Paris, France. Backed by a full orchestra, fans can also expect to be serenaded with music composed by Verdi and Schubert.
