    His father is African American, his mother Korean: for violinist Randall Goosby, born in San Diego in 1996, diversity is the most natural thing in the world. He is now bringing this self image to the classical music industry – and is about to embark on a meteoric career. In the summer of 2021, he made his debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Gustavo Dudamel at the Hollywood Bowl, last October was his first appearance with the London Philharmonic, and in May 2022 he will play the Mendelssohn Concerto with the Philharmonia Orchestra. “Randall Goosby knows who he is,” according to his teacher Itzhak Perlman. “The important thing for me, in any musician, is sound. And his is beautiful. It immediately hits the listener.” Goosby’s debut album Roots shows that he also combines music with a political statement. It’s a tribute to Black composers who, he says, “had to get by in the music business when racism, prejudice, and exclusion were still the order of the day.” One of them, William Grant Still, is also on his Debut program in Lucerne. Goosby will pair Still with Antonín Dvořák’s Sonatina, written in America, and a highly Romantic violin sonata by Edvard Grieg.

    This concert has no intermission.
