The Lucerne Festival Orchestra officially opens the Summer Festival on 11 August with Gustav Mahler’s Third Symphony under the baton of its Music Director Riccardo Chailly. An epic depiction of nature and the world, the Third offers a brilliant introduction to the Festival theme of “Paradise.” The following international youth orchestras will perform in the days leading up to the opening: the Havana Lyceum Orchestra with Sarah Willis and Carnegie Hall’s National Youth Orchestra Jazz with Sean Jones and Dee Dee Bridgewater. Now in its 20th year, the Lucerne Festival Orchestra musicians will perform five additional concerts through 19 August. Chailly will conduct a Mozart-Brahms evening with Maria João Pires as the soloist; he will also continue the Rachmaninoff cycle with the First Symphony and Fourth Piano Concerto, in which the soloist will be “artiste étoile” Daniil Trifonov. To conclude the residency, guest conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin will conduct Anton Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony. In addition, soloists from the orchestra will perform chamber music in two concerts. The Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, as well as the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, will again provide symphonic highlights at the KKL Luzern in the summer of 2023... READ MORE
