    Looking forward to something is the loveliest kind of joy. Which is why this year we are starting Lucerne’s Summer Festival even before the official Opening Concert – with the mini-festival “Music for Future.” We have invited performers from the young generation from Russia, Great Britain, Uganda, and Switzerland. After all, what the music scene will look in the future will be determined by these artists. That also means having people from every continent participate: all of us are connected by the universal language of music. The Russian National Youth Symphony Orchestra will start it all off with a survey of 100 years of Russian music, spanning from the ”founding father” Mikhail Glinka to Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances – a work in which this late-Romantic composer looked back over his career shortly before his death as an exile in America: here, melancholy lyricism blends with virtuoso orchestral playing. Also on the program is one of the best-loved works of the violin repertoire as performed by the young Russian violinist Sergei Dogadin, who won the Moscow Tchaikovsky Competition in 2019.
