    “Request Concert”
    A program to suit your taste

    The issue of power is cleared up at this concert: You  get to decide for yourself what the Festival Strings Lucerne and Daniel Dodds will play! You can choose from 20 short, entertaining orchestral pieces in five categories, from Mozart to Piazzolla, which you can listen to beforehand by clicking here. Till 28 August, you will also have the opportunity to cast a vote there. The Top Five will then be performed on the Special Event Day. 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 to present their wild card. Some- times the surprises are the loveliest pieces.

    For listeners ages 8 and up

    Festival Strings Lucerne

    Die Festival Strings Lucerne, die 1956 von Rudolf Baumgartner und Wolfgang Schneiderhan gegründet wurden, sind LUCERNE FESTIVAL mit alljährlichen Auftritten verbunden. Die Stammbesetzung um den Konzertmeister und Künstlerischen Leiter Daniel Dodds besteht aus siebzehn Streichersolisten und einem Cembalisten, kann aber bis zu einem 60-köpfigen Orchester erweitert werden, das auch sinfonisches Repertoire zur Aufführung bringt. Ihre besondere Klangkultur verdanken die «Strings» zum einen den Meisterinstrumenten aus den legendären Cremoneser Werkstätten Stradivari, Guarneri und Amati, die sich im Besitz des Ensembles befinden, zum anderen ihrer grossen Aufführungstradition. Denn von Anbeginn prägte die Zusammenarbeit mit prominenten Solisten das Profil des Ensembles. Yehudi Menuhin, David Oistrach, Pablo Casals, Wilhelm Kempff und Clara Haskil waren in seinen Konzerten zu hören, und auch heutige Stars wie Anne-Sophie Mutter, Mischa Maisky, Hélène Grimaud, Daniil Trifonov, Rudolf Buchbinder, Martin Grubinger sowie Renaud und Gautier Capuçon zählen zu den musikalischen Partnern. Im Sommer 2017 traten die «Strings» als erstes Schweizer Orchester in der neuen Hamburger Elbphilharmonie auf und gastierten beim Würzburger Mozartfest, beim Grafenegg Festival, im Amsterdamer Concertgebouw und im Kopenhagener Tivoli. In der Saison 2017/18 steht neben Auftritten in München, Stuttgart, Valencia und Alicante auch eine grosse Asien-Reise auf dem Programm, die das Ensemble nach Peking, Shanghai, Suzhou, Taipeh und Seoul führen wird. Sein Repertoire erstreckt sich vom Barock bis zur zeitgenössischen Musik; so gibt es im kommenden Sommer etwa ein gemeinsames Projekt mit dem Komponisten Brett Dean. Regelmässig veröffentlicht das Ensemble CD-Einspielungen; zuletzt erschien eine Aufnahme dreier Mozart-Violinkonzerte mit Arabella Steinbacher.

    LUCERNE FESTIVAL (IMF) debut on 26 August 1956 in a program of works by Corelli, Purcell, Bach, and Pergolesi.

    Daniel Dodds

    The violinist Daniel Dodds, who was born in 1971 to Australian-Chinese parents in Adelaide, left his home in Australia at the age of 17 to continue studying violin with Gunars Larsens at the University of Music in Lucerne. After graduating with distinction, other significant influences included master classes with Rudolf Baumgartner, Franco Gulli, Nathan Milstein, and Thomas Zehetmair. In 2000 Daniel Dodds was engaged as principal concertmaster by the Festival Strings Lucerne, and since 2012 he has served as Artistic Director of the ensemble, with which he performs all around the world. He is additionally active as a freelance soloist and has most recently performed with the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana under Vladimir Ashkenazy, the Australian World Orchestra under Zubin Mehta, the Sinfonie Orchester Berlin, and the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2008 Claudio Abbado appointed Dodds to the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA, where he has remained a member every summer since. In this context he has also appeared as a chamber musician. He collaborates as guest concertmaster with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, the Camerata Salzburg, and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Among his partners in the field of chamber music are Dimitri and Vovka Ashkenazy, Kolja Blacher, Wolfram Christ, James Galway, Jens Peter Maintz, Herbert Schuch, and Martin Stadtfeld. His repertoire spans from Bach to contemporary composers and includes crossover projects involving jazz, tango, and music of the Far East. In 2012 he released his solo CD Time Transcending, which presents works by composers from Bach to Berio. Dodds, who teaches violin and chamber music at the Hochschule für Musik – Luzern, plays the Stradivari “ex Hämmerle – ex Baumgartner” from 1717.

    Since 2000 Daniel Dodds has been an annual guest at LUCERNE FESTIVAL with the Festival Strings Lucerne.
