    “How New Things Are Created: The ‘2021 Roche Young Commissions’”

    No dress code, no need to have lessons in advance: the 40min series offers host-led programs for beginners, connoisseurs and explorers in the early evening, all with free admission. Here you can meet the stars in rehearsal, get to know unusual repertoire, and have a look behind the scenes at how the Festival operates. Unconventional and varied.

    Doors open 20 minutes before the start of the event.

    Due to the current Corona situation, attending the 40min concerts is only possible with a pre-booked ticket. Free tickets for 40min can be booked via our webshop from Tuesday 10 August. Per person, two tickets can be purchased.

    Lucerne Festival Contemporary Orchestra (LFCO)

    With the Lucerne Festival Contemporary Orchestra — LFCO for short — Lucerne Festival has launched a new orchestra this year: an orchestra of excellence for the performance of new and contemporary music. The LFCO thus forms a counterpart to the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and focuses on 20th- and 21st-century scores, from modern classics to commissioned works that are premiered in Lucerne. The international members of the LFCO have all benefited from training at the Lucerne Festival Academy, which was initiated by Pierre Boulez and is now directed by Wolfgang Rihm. Thanks to its close ties to the Academy and its network, the LFCO is able to play a pioneering role in the performance of contemporary music and in the development of forward-looking concert formats. Through its projects, it exploits the possibilities of new technologies; interdisciplinary work gives rise to novel listening and concert experiences. The LFCO can be heard in numerous performances at the Lucerne Summer Festival, as well as at Lucerne Festival Forward in November — and, of course, at guest performances all over the world. In its first summer, the LFCO collaborates with conductors Heinz Holliger, Lin Liao, Johanna Malangré, and Ilan Volkov, presenting music by composers ranging from Stravinsky and Webern to Boulez and Xenakis, as well as premieres by Amarouch, Colţea, Milenko, Vaughan, and composer-in-residence Rebecca Saunders. The musicians will join Patricia Kopatchinskaja to perform the staged concert Bye-Bye Beethoven. They will also participate in performances of Kagel’s Staatstheater at the Luzerner Theater.

Pierre Boulez was an important mentor, and she took his master class in conducting as part of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY in 2007; he then chose her to co-conduct Stockhausen’s GRUPPEN. Lin Liao also became acquainted at that time with Peter Eötvös, who subsequently engaged her as his assistant for concerts with the Rotterdam Philharmonic and the Asko|Schönberg Ensemble, additionally inviting her to the Holland Festival in 2009. Contemporary music is a focus of her work, whether as Chief Conductor of the Ensemble Laboratorium or as a guest conductor with the Ensemble Modern, the Collegium Novum Zürich, the Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, and the Ensemble Aventure, as well as at the Ultraschall Festival in Berlin, the ManiFeste in Paris, and the Klangspuren Schwaz. As First Kapellmeisterin at the Schleswig-Holstein Landestheater, Lin Liao has moreover developed a wide-ranging music theater repertoire. Operatic credits include the Chemnitz Opera House, Deutsche Oper am Rhein, and the municipal theaters of Krefeld-Mönchengladbach, where she has conducted such works as d’Albert’s Tiefland, Mozart’s Entführung, and Verdi’s La traviata. She also feels a commitment to Taiwanese composers and led the world premiere of Chang-Fa Yiu’s opera The Peach Blossom Fan at the National Theater of Taipei with an ensemble of Peking Opera players and a Western symphony orchestra. In the concert hall, Lin Liao has led the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, the Wuppertal Symphony Orchestra, and the Orquestra Metropolitana de Lisboa.
