What’s new in the world of music? The LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY, a unique master school for 20th- and 21st-century music, will bring you up to date. In the summer of 2020, Academy participants will again rehearse and prepare orchestral, ensemble, and chamber concerts under the guidance of proven specialists. In addition to modern classics by Igor Stravinsky and Anton Webern, these concerts will focus on numerous brand-new scores. For example, the Academy students will meet with composer-in-residence Rebecca Saunders and premiere her new piano concerto. In the inaugural season of a three-year-long series titled “Cosmos Boulez,” they will rediscover important works by the Academy’s founder, Pierre Boulez, which he withdrew during his lifetime. They will collaborate with the conductors Sylvain Cambreling and David Robertson, the soprano Juliet Fraser, and the pianist Nicolas Hodges.
Closing date: 10 Feb 2020
