In his third year as Music Director of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA, Riccardo Chailly will conduct three different programs, turning his attention to Russia (with such works as Igor Stravinsky’s The Firebird) as well as France (with an all-Ravel program). And the will explore Anton Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony, which will be combined with overtures by Bruckner’s idol, Richard Wagner. To open the Summer Festival, Riccardo Chailly and the musicians of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA will be joined by the Chinese pianist Lang Lang.
