Request Concert

The issue of power is clearly addressed at this concert. The power to decide for yourself what the Festival Strings Lucerne and Daniel Dodds will perform was up to you!

You chose from a list of 20 short, entertaining orchestral pieces in five categories, from Mozart to Piazzolla, by listening beforehand to the playlist here.The Top Five selections, as chosen by the power of the public vote, make up the concert that will be performed on the Special Event Day on 1 September. Through this project, we hope to inject a little basic democracy into musical life – keeping true to the motto: All power comes from the audience. And since every good democracy also includes the protection of minorities, the musicians will be given a “carte blanche” onstage and will proceed in turn to present their wild card. Sometimes the surprises are the loveliest pieces.
