The Lucerne Festival Orchestra travelled to China for the third time in a row: from 15 to 17 October, and continued its Shanghai residency with three concerts under the direction of Music Director Riccardo Chailly.
In addition to Mahler’s Sixth Symphony – the foreboding “Tragic Symphony” whose finale features spectacular hammer blows – the program included Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto and symphonies by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. The young Russian pianist Alexander Malofeev was the soloist. Here some impressions of the Shanghai residency:
