Passion and intensity in a recital of Brahms' chamber music in Lucerne.
Under conductor Emmanuelle Haïm, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra stepped out of its classical Romantic core repertoire to play an evening of Handel.
Planners of the Lucerne Festival at the Kultur und Kongresshaus Luzern (KKL) set out to change the preconception that conductors are generally male. With a theme entitled “Prima Donna”, the aim is to promote female conductors.
Many think that Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony points to a kind of cosmic grandeur, and little else can match the power and excellence of its finest performance. The Lucerne concert proved them right.
