    *world premiere | commissioned by the Swiss Composers’ Society

    They’re young, versatile, and eager to experiment: More than 1,000 young musical talents have participated in the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY. As LUCERNE FESTIVAL ALUMNI they retain a close association with the Festival and form a unique international network. In the summer of 2016 selected alumni will return to Lucerne for a “World Premiere Festival” within the Festival. In four short concerts in a row, they will unveil no fewer than eight brand-new ensemble pieces that emerged from a composition competition held in conjunction with the Swiss Composers’ Society. But that’s not all: in order to give the audience a more intense, deeper listening experience, they’ll try out new presentation formats, such as composer talks using music examples or performing a particular work twice.

    Ensemble of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ALUMNI

    Since its founding in 2003, more than 1,200 instrumentalists, conductors, and composers from all over the world have undergone the training offered by the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY. Its graduates include such artists who have since gone on to achieve renown as the JACK Quartet and the conductors Pablo Heras-Casado and Kevin John Edusei, as well as many musicians who today are members of internationally established orchestras, perform in the area of chamber music, organize experimental projects, or teach at conservatories. Many of them remain closely connected to the Festival. Selected former Academy students regularly return as LUCERNE FESTIVAL ALUMNI to Lucerne. They enrich the programming with performances in the field of contemporary music, whether in the 40min series or in productions by LUCERNE FESTIVAL YOUNG, while additionally being on hand to offer help and advice for current Academy students. Supported through the Alumni platform, they keep in contact with each other to realize their own projects around the world. A unique international network of young musicians has thus emerged. For their first project, in the 2013-14 season, the Alumni presented four world premieres in New York, London, Beijing, Zurich, and Lucerne related to the theme “Music at Risk.” Another “marathon of premieres” followed in 2016; in addition, an ensemble of Alumni appeared in the NY Phil Biennial led by Alan Gilbert to give the three-part concert series “Ligeti Forward.” In the past year, the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ALUMNI performed on tour with the Swiss jazz singer Andreas Schaerer in his project “The Big Wig.” Most recently, they gave two concerts in January 2018 in New York City, combining music by Frank Zappa with works of Pierre Boulez, Edgard Varèse, Olga Neuwirth, Tyshawn Sorey, and John Zorn.

    The LUCERNE FESTIVAL ALUMNI’s first performance at LUCERNE FESTIVAL was on 3 September 2014 with the “Music at Risk” project, presenting works by Dai Fujikura, Judd Greenstein, Jagoda Szmytka, and Ying Wang.

    Lin Liao

    Die taiwanesische Dirigentin Lin Liao studierte Komposition und Klavier an der National University of the Arts in Taipeh sowie Dirigieren an der Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Wien. Ein wichtiger Mentor ihrer Karriere war Pierre Boulez, dessen Meisterkurs für Dirigenten sie 2007 im Rahmen der LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY besuchte; zum Abschluss wählte er sie, gemeinsam mit Pablo Heras-Casado und Kevin John Edusei, für das Dirigat von Karlheinz Stockhausens Gruppen aus. Damals lernte Lin Liao auch Peter Eötvös kennen, der sie anschliessend als Assistentin für Konzerte beim Rotterdam Philharmonic und beim Asko|Schoenberg-Ensemble verpflichtete und ausserdem 2009 zum Holland Festival einlud. Die zeitgenössische Musik bildet einen Schwerpunkt ihrer Arbeit, ob als Chefdirigentin des Ensembles Laboratorium oder als Gast beim Ensemble Modern, beim Ensemble Aventure, beim Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin oder beim Ensemble Avantgarde. Als Erste Kapellmeisterin am Schleswig-Holsteinischen Landestheater erarbeitete sich Lin Liao überdies ein breites Musiktheater-Repertoire. Opernengagements führten sie auch an das Opernhaus Chemnitz, an die Deutsche Oper am Rhein und an die Städtischen Bühnen Krefeld-Mönchengladbach, wo sie u. a. d’Alberts Tiefland, Mozarts Entführung, Puccinis Madama Butterfly und Verdis La traviata dirigierte. Auch taiwanesischen Komponisten fühlt sie sich verpflichtet: So brachte sie am National Theater von Taipeh Chang-Fa Yius Oper The Peach Blossom Fan mit einem Ensemble der Peking-Oper sowie einem westlichen Sinfonieorchester zur Uraufführung. Im Konzertbereich leitete Lin Liao das Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien, das Beethoven-Orchester Bonn, das Sinfonieorchester Wuppertal und das Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa. Im Leipziger Gewandhaus war sie mehrfach mit Education-Projekten zu erleben. Mehr unter www.linliao.net.

    Debut bei LUCERNE FESTIVAL im Sommer 2007; Lin Liao übernahm hier eine der drei Dirigentenpositionen bei einer Aufführung von Stockhausens Gruppen.
