Call it a glorious twist of fate? It’s only fitting that Switzerland’s oldest orchestra, founded in 1805, just when Beethoven was writing his Violin Concerto, makes its breathtaking Thailand debut playing that same hallmark piece, as well as what is perhaps the most famous piece of classical music in history, his dramatic Symphony No. 5.
Prolific in recording but steeped in musical heritage, the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Michael Sanderling who has experience conducting most of Europe’s leading orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, the Munich Philharmonic, and more.
Soloist Augustin Hadelich is one of the most talented artists to have ever picked up a violin. The Grammy Award winner is currently ranked the best violinist in the United States and one of the top on this Earth. Keep an eye on his equally astonishing instrument: he plays a 300-year-old violin named ‘Leduc, ex Szeryng’.
