About the Lucerne Festival Orchestra

When they founded the Lucerne Festival Orchestra in 2003, Claudio Abbado and Michael Haefliger forged a link with the very beginning of the Festival in Lucerne in 1938, when Arturo Toscanini brought together acclaimed virtuosos of the era to form a one-of-a-kind elite orchestra for a special “concert de gala”. Each summer, Claudio Abbado invited renowned soloists, chamber musicians, and music teachers to Lucerne, where this “orchestra of friends” established its international reputation as one of the leading symphony orchestras. In the summer of 2016, Riccardo Chailly, one of the most sought-after conductors of our time, took over artistic direction of the orchestra. Born in 1953 in Milan, he has enjoyed a close association with the Festival since 1988, appearing here in many concerts in which he has led the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.
