Florian makes his Lucerne Festival debut alongside acclaimed clarinet player Anna Hashimoto, who is also performing at the Festival for the first time. If you can’t make the journey to Lucerne, you might be able to catch their concert in London on 27th July which also features the pieces by Burgmüller, Hurlstone, Benjamin and Debussy. Anna is also a member of the Atéa Quintet, with whom Florian has performed on several occasions (you can hear Florian with the quintet at the Etchingham Festival in July). Anna enjoys a busy performing career as soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player in the UK and abroad. She is currently a Vandoren-UK Artist, and clarinet tutor at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. She recently released her third solo album on the Fontec label, ‘A Touch of Britain’.
The Summer Festival is the largest of the three annual music festivals held in Lucerne: within a period of just four weeks you can experience more than 100 events, among them some 30 symphony concerts. Every year since 2003 it has been launched by the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, which Claudio Abbado founded in 2003. Since 2016 Riccardo Chailly has helmed this splendid ensemble comprising internationally acclaimed soloists, chamber musicians, teachers, and members of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the Filarmonica della Scala. The Festival also includes its own master school for new music in the form of the Lucerne Festival Academy, which was founded by Pierre Boulez and Festival Director Michael Haefliger and which has been led by Wolfgang Rihm since 2016.
