    Not everyday do we get to experience this at the KKL Luzern, the Festival’s headquarters and a veritable cathedral for classical music: at the beginning of the Summer Festival, it will teem with young people. Instead of the major stars of the scene being given the first word, two youth orchestras will open the series of about 100 Festival events. The Russian National Youth Symphony Orchestra, one of the very finest in Europe, kicks off the Festival and need not fear comparison with established orchestras. Under the direction of Valentin Uryupin, who won the Sir Georg Solti Conducting Competition in 2017, an all-Tchaikovsky program is on the agenda, including the famous Pathétique, the Sixth Symphony, as the main work. In this score, the orchestra can pull out all of its artistic stops as the players traverse a broad emotional spectrum, from euphoria to deep despair. Before that, the gifted violin virtuoso Sergei Dogadin will play Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. He has a very special relationship with this composer, having emerged as the winner of the prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition in 2019.
