Welcome to Lucerne Festival's brand new web series: The Classical ABC
This series is aimed at (german-speaking) children, young people and the young at heart, aged eight years and up. Each short episode explains a particular term from the field of classical music.
In the first episode, we turn to the letter "T as in Taktstock [baton]". How can conductors conduct an entire orchestra with just a piece of wood? Can a baton even be dangerous? Do you want to conduct your very own rhythms at home?
