Latvian cellist Mischa Maisky has relished in performances with his own daughter, pianist Lily Maisky, at this year’s Verbier Festival in Switzerland. Oliver Condy meets him ahead of the final two performances of his 20th season. They discuss the draw of Verbier, the magic of making music with family and the importance of remaining humble as a performer.

Mischa Maisky joins Renaud Capuçon, Pretty Yende, Kirill Gerstein and other musical friends in music by Villa-Lobos, Shostakovich and Edward Nesbit on Wednesday 30 July at Verbier. Visit:
