During the “Life Is Live” Festival, the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA will collaborate for the first time ever with Herbert Blomstedt to celebrate Ludwig van Beethoven, who 250th anniversary we are celebrating in 2020. Under the baton of the Swedish maestro, who makes his home in Lucerne, the orchestra will perform the Symphonies No. 2 and 3, respectively, on two consecutive evenings, as well as the First Piano Concerto (on both concerts), with Martha Argerich as the soloist. In addition, a chamber music ensemble of selected musicians will perform septets by Mozart and Beethoven.
