    He was born in Lucerne, gained his first musical experience as a choirboy in the Lucerne Kantorei, and also initially studied at his native city’s music academy. So his appearance at the Summer Festival is something of a home game for Salomo Schweizer. But the oboist, who was born in 1993, has long since made his way in the wider world of music. His later studies took him via Zurich and Lausanne to the Berlin Philharmonic’s Dominik Wollenweber, with whom he put the finishing touches on his skills. Since 2017 he has been playing as principal with the Braunschweig State Orchestra, with which ensemble he has performed the oboe concertos of Mozart, Haydn, and Strauss. His debut program explores various facets of the theme of “crazy.” Robert Schumann must, of course, be among the offerings. He is represented by the Three Romances, Op. 94 – intimate domestic music from the wild, revolutionary year of 1849. Schweizer also plays Antonio Pasculli, the “Paganini of the oboe”; takes us to the afterlife with Gluck’s Dance of the Blessed Spirits; and celebrates the exuberant Spanish joie de vivre with music by Isaac Albéniz.
