The first edition of Spectrum Classic-Electronic Festival, a two-day event combining classic and electronic music, was held in Switzerland over the weekend.
The festival, held in the medieval town of Saint-Prex, was initiated by Swiss pianist and composer Melodie Zhao.
“I think this festival could be one of a kind in Switzerland, because it blurs the frontiers between musical genres and brings together different audiences,” Zhao told Xinhua.
“I wish to attract more young people to classical music via this event and believe that music should not bear boundaries of social rank or age,” Zhao said.
The festival attracted hundreds of spectators.
