Presentations & Panel Discussions

Music says more than 1000 words. True, and yet it's also true that the more you know, the more you hear. Which is why LUCERNE FESTIVAL supplements its concerts with a varied program of related events: presentations, concert introductions, artist interviews, and panel discussions all enhance your experience of the music.
