Teodor Currentzis and Friends

From April 1 to 4, 2020, we will present the first of the new musical weekends at LUCERNE FESTIVAL. We have invited the Greek conductor Teodor Currentzis, a wizard at the podium, to serve as the first artist for this inaugural edition. Over a four-day period you will have an opportunity to become immersed in his artistic cosmos. Currentzis will conduct Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Philippe Hersant’s moving choral opera Tristia, and an unusual choral program. There will also be a rehearsal open to the public, a film portrait of the conductor at work, and a panel discussion.


Concerts with Teodor Currentzis

Immerse yourself in the artistic cosmos of an exceptional conductor. In addition to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, Teodor Currentzis will perform Philippe Hersant's moving choral opera Tristia, which revolves around the fate of political prisoners, as well as an unusual vocal program. He will be joined by the choir and orchestra of his ensemble musicAeterna along with of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA.
