Montreux Statues & Monuments
Montreux Jazz 40th
Founded in 1967 by Claude Nobs, the Montreux Jazz Festival has become an indispensable event for music fans over the years, both in Switzerland and abroad.
It is therefore normal that a work of art should be erected in one of the city's many gardens on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Montreux Jazz Festival.
It is situated in one of the Fairmont Montreux Palace gardens by the lake side.
Romero Britto, brasilian artist living in the United States has created this sculpture. Romero is also the one who has designed the 1999 Montreux Jazz Festival poster.
He declared :
Dear Claude & Thierry,
Thank you so much for all your help in coordinating the sculpture unveiling in beautiful Montreux.
I am so happy with all the results and hope to be able to keep being a part of the Montreux festivities for years to come.
A work of art inaugurated in 2006.
