    Salomo Schweizer (“the Swissman”) has an appropriate last name since he is indeed Swiss (and even a native of Lucerne). But his career as an oboist has already taken him abroad. Born in 1993, he studied not just in his home town and at the Haute École de Musique in Lausanne but with the Berlin Philharmonic’s Dominik Wollenweber as well. And since 2017 he has been playing as principal oboist with the Braunschweig Staatsorchester, with which he has already performed oboe concertos by Mozart, Haydn, and Strauss. Schweizer is “a genuine hit and a gift,” according the Goslarer Zeitung, and the Friends of the Braunschweig Staatstheater honored him with their advancement award. His Lucerne debut program centers around the summer theme of “Joy.” The Spaniard Isaac Albéniz’s Suite española presents extroverted dances of joy, while the concerto by Antonio Pasculli, known as the “Paganini of the oboe,” brims with virtuosic exuberance. Joy also informs the inspiring selections from Gluck, Donizetti, and Schumann, whose the Three Romances were a Christmas gift to his wife Clara.
