Music: From Classic to Contemporary

The 27th annual St Barth
Music Festival once again
has an ambitious program,
especially for a small festi-
val on a small island
where churches and tennis
courts serve as perform-
ance venues! But leave it
to Frances De Broff, festi-
val co-founder and direc-
tor, to pull it all off, not
only running .,, u, lici;,
but also playing violin in
the festival orchestra.
In talking to De Broff a
few days before kick-off
2011, she outlines a few of
the musical highlights to
be heard in concert from
January 11-18, after two
nights of dance on January
7 & 8 (see complete pro-
gram page 3). "The free
Mozart concert is all
Mozart this year with the

great Alex Klein playing
oboe in the Mozart quartet,
then he will conduct the
orchestra evening. And the
fabulous Robert Langevin,
principal flutist with the
New York Philharmonic,
will perform a Mozart
flute concerto," notes De
Broff. Other high notes
include the opera evening
with two singers who have
been to the festival before,
soprano Robin Follman
and tenor Scott Piper,
joined by newcomers
Sarah Joy Kabanuck, also
a soprano, and tenor David
Miller. They will perform
an evening of Italian arias,
featuring operas ranging
from La Traviata to La
Boheme by way of Lucia
di Lammermoor and Mac-
beth. Stefano Canuti, who
festival-goers usually see
playing the bassoon, will
conduct the opera evening
for the first time while

Steven Mercurio, who has
conducted in past years,
serves as artistic director
for the evening. "Steven is
currently in Asia on tour
with Sting," De Broff
explains. "He set up this
entire opera evening in
advance, and his wife is
bringing down all of his
orchestrations. A lot of
work goes into this festival
De Broff also notes the
return of pianist Jon Naka-
matsu, playing Chopin for
the piano evening, and
jazzman Jason Marsalis
who returns for a double-
header of his New
Orleans-inspired music.
"Larry Combs has retired
as the principal clarinet in
Chicago," De Broff adds.
"But he also plays great
jazz, which is pretty
unusual. So I invited him
to play not only some
Mozart ( I.ii, Flute
excerpts) but also with
Jason Marsalis, but with
no rehearsals, all improvi-
sation, won't that be
Other festival favorites
who are returning this year
range from The Miro
Quartet who will play
music by Brahms as well
as Philip Glass, and per-
formers such as Brian
Lewis, an incredible vio-
linist, who has long been
part of the festival family.
The festival website is
now up and running for
this year, in both French
and English so check it out
at www.stbartsmusicfesti-
val.org, then take time to
check out a concert or two.

With gusty winds as high as
25 knots, conditions for the
New Year's Eve Regatta on
December 31, 2010 includ-
ed sunny skies and chal-
lenging seas with waves as
high as six feet. A total of
18 boats, 17 mono-hulls
divided into three classes by
size and one catamaran, set
sail with staggered starts
from 10am to 12 noon, with
the largest boat, a new 188'
foot ketch, Twizzle, starting
last. Skippered by Gordon
Percy Twizzle caught up
with only one other boat
during the entire race: the
125' Perini Navi P2, which
stopped for approximately
30 minutes to replace a sail
after a fitting broke.
The winning boat in Class 3
(for the 80'+ sailboats),
with the fastest time around
the island, was the 122'
sloop, Ghost, in its first
New Year's Eve Regatta
appearance, clocking
around the island at 1 hour,
51 minutes, and 12 seconds
(yet not beating the current
record of 1 hour, 32 min-
utes, and 7 seconds set by
the 147' Visione in 2004).
"We had a great race, really
superb," says Mike
Hutchinson, the English
skipper of Ghost, owned by
Arne Glimcher, who was

who has sailed with Ghost
for the past four years,
including a few past edi-

What's Cooking At Village St Jean?

New for 2011 is the opening of a fun
new restaurant, Le Bar du Village, at
Village St Jean, one of the oldest
hotels on the island, where hotelier
Catherine Charneau and chef Felix
Questel have more than a few surpris-
es up their sleeves.
Catherine, who runs the hotel with her
brother Bertrand, comments on the
decision to open a new watering hole
in Saint Barth: "We felt there was
demand for a place where you can
have drinks and light meals," she says.
"We want to keep it easy and simple,
not a big restaurant." They also want-
ed to bring the convivial dining room
at the hotel alive again, as it has been
two seasons since it was active as a
"We have a lot of single guests at the
hotel as well," Catherine adds. "We
want them to meet other guests in a
relaxed atmosphere and have fun."
Special events are also on tap; with a
piano and drums on hand, music is
sure to be on the schedule, as well as
wine tasting, and there is a bookcase
full of board games, from Scrabble to
Monopoly for a casual evening at Le
Bar du Village.
But perhaps the most important thing
is what's happening in the kitchen. A
St Barth native, Questel has worked at
La Cantina, as well as the Christopher
Hotel, and done catering with Wendy
Wang. Trained in Guadeloupe, Mar-
tinique, and Paris, Questel will be cre-
ating a wide variety of small, interest-
ing dishes to be served together, along
the principle of "grazing." He has a
distinct knack for the culinary art of
plate decorating and , diiilii that

comes out of his kitchen looks intrigu-
ing. "Felix is using essential oils in his
recipes," says Catherine, who notes
that her new chef is "very easy going"
as well. "He is a real find," she adds.
The daily specials are listed on a
blackboard, including a potpourri of
flavors served in a series of little
plates, with products based on what is
available at the market on any given

small spa and a few suites that
Bertrand Charneau has redesigned in a
handsome contemporary style.
The newly renovated Junior Terrace
Suite features two bathrooms, master
bedroom, and living room with sleep-
ing accommodations. Another bed-
room below can be added to create a
family cottage with three bedrooms
and three bathrooms.


day, including fresh fish, scallops,
shrimp, and regional fruits and vegeta-
bles. "There is a "guess what" to the
flavors," notes Catherine. "It may take
an entire meal to figure out what all
the flavors are." Recent specials
ranged from cold mushroom soup and
squash stuffed with conch to grilled
mahi-mahi with blue octopus ink
sauce, all served with panache in small
glassware or white plates of various
shapes and sizes.
Le Bar du Village is the finishing
touch to a hotel that has continually
been updated, and now features a

"The bar complete the Village," says
Catherine, "It's what we were missing
and hopefully will become a great
place for people to meet and greet,
right at the center of the Village." The
other night was a perfect example: a
few musicians who played in concert
with Macy Gray, and American singer
Christine Gordon, stopped by and
treated us to a few hot songs, adding a
musical note to the tasty morsels on
the table.....

A music festival has as its vocation to create a succession of special concert
events in places of exception.

Frances Debroff and her team have succeeded in running the St. Barth Music
Festival for the past 27 years. That is no small feat. I understand all of the
challenges that can arise in such an ambitious undertaking. For 22 years, I
organized a classical music festival in Ramatuelle, situated in the south of

Today, my commitment to supporting classical music is stronger than ever.
That is why I became involved in www.medici.tv, a fantastic musical
adventure with Herve Boissiere.

Integrating technological breakthroughs like streaming and digital tools like
video-on-demand, www.medici.tv pioneered the audiovisual digital
concert hall. Our cross-media web platform has become one of the most
prestigious web addresses for live classical music streaming and best-of-
genre video programming.

The audiovisual musical movement experience is no longer limited to hip
hop, techno, pop music or indie bands. Now, classical music lovers can also
experience the audiovisual thrill of live performance, whenever and wherev-
er they choose.

We hope to protect the past and ensure the future of a great musical her-
itage by making great classical music accessible to internet audiences
around the world.

I cordially invite you to become part of the www.medici.tv movement
and to experience the power of classical music for yourself.
