ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Since the formation of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra by Claudio Abbado in 2003, musicians from the MCO have formed the core of this group. During this summer's festival, around 20 MCO musicians will take part in four orchestra concerts.

This evening, the LFO takes the stage under the baton of Festival Director Riccardo Chailly, who succeeded Claudio Abbado in 2016. After their presentation of Gustav Mahler's first symphony in 2022, today's concert will be dedicated to this composer's 7th symphony, premiered in Prague in 1908. This work is sometimes referred to as the "Song of the Night" ("Lied der Nacht") because of the second and fourth movements titled "Night Music" ("Nachtmusik") by Mahler himself.

The program will also include a new work by Swedish composer Lisa Streich, commissioned for the Lucerne Festival.
