Traditionally, Switzerland has an important and impressive heritage regarding festivals for classical music, among them the famous Lucerne Festival, rooting back to the so-called "Concert de Gala" in the gardens of Richard Wagner's villa at Tribschen in 1938 conducted by Arturo Toscanini. This release features the fascinating variety and the many facets of the classical festival scene in Switzerland. The selection of the works takes the importance of big names and well known works into account, but also presents modern or even avant-garde approaches or less well known chamber music works. The world’s leading orchestras, conductors and soloists, outstanding concert venues like the KKL Culture and Convention Centre by the renowned architect Jean Nouvel in Lucerne, a breathtaking landscape: there are many reasons for falling in love with the Swiss music festivals. The Swiss festivals now draw more than 500,000 classical music enthusiasts to the shores of Lake Lucerne or the Verbier mountains every year. And the numbers of visitors is growing from year to year. With this release, you will understand why.DISC 1 Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3 in C Minor, Op. 37 Francesco Piemontesi, pianoChamber Orchestra of Europe / Roger Norrington, conductorMozart: Symphony No. 39 in E-Flat Major, K. 543 Francesco Piemontesi, pianoLe Cercle de L'Harmonie / Jérémie Rhorer, conductorDISC 2 Mozart: Symphony No. 40 in G Minor, K. 550 Mozart: Symphony No. 41 in C Major, K. 551, "Jupiter" Le Cercle de L'Harmonie / Jérémie Rhorer, conductorDISC 3 Elgar: Introduction and Allegro, Op. 47 Schumann QuartettCHAARTS Chamber Artists Felix Froschhammer, concert masterKancheli: Chiaroscuro for Violin and Orchestra Sebastian Bohren, violinCHAARTS Chamber ArtistsAndreas Fleck, conductorSchumann:Dein Angesicht, Op. 127 No. 2 Lehn' deine Wang' an meine Wang', Op. 142 No. 2 Es leuchtet meine Liebe, Op. 127 No. 3 Mein Wagen rollet langsam, Op. 142 No. 4 Ian Bostridge, tenorSaskia Giorgini, pianoRalph Vaughan Williams: On Wenlock Edge: V.
