ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Since the foundation of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra (LFO) by Claudio Abbado in 2003, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra has traditionally formed the core of this ensemble. In 2024, the LFO will present three concerts during the festival's Spring edition, as well as another five in the first week of the Summer Festival in August.
In its second concert devoted to the symphonic oeuvre of Ludwig van Beethoven, the LFO interprets the much beloved and lively seventh symphony. When this symphony was first performed in 1806, a contemporary of Beethoven's happily commented that “above all, the new symphony...deserved the great acclaim and the exceptionally good reception it received!”.
Young violinist Daniel Lozakovich makes his debut with the LFO this year, and quite fittingly the Spring Festival's mini Beethoven cycle is completed with the composer's violin concerto.
