Recorded live 2003-2006<br /><br />The present DVD provides a comprehensive overview of the work of this already legendary orchestra featuring a selection of outstanding recordings from the 2003 to 2006 festivals. For prominent works by Beethoven, Bruckner, Debussy and Mahler, the orchestra is joined by reputed soloists. In addition to a masterly filmed musical experience, the box set also comprises the documentary "The History of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra" including rarely seen rehearsal, concert and archival footage featuring Wilhelm Furtwangler, Ferenc Fricsay, Herbert von Karajan, Yehudi Menuhin and Arturo Toscanini. Also included is a bonus DVD of Maurizio Pollini playing Beethoven in a first ever audiovisual release. The box set comes, at a very attractive price, in a luxurious presentation with an extended booklet with insightful essays and interesting photographic material - a suitable homage to a very special orchestra and its great conductor.

“It’s different having best friends together. Everyone is there to enjoy making music, to take pleasure, to play with enthusiasm, with passion. They are prepared to do any crazy thing I ask them for the sake of the music. To fly, to walk through fire.” Claudio Abbado
