Claudio Abbado is undeniably the supreme Mahler conductor of our time.

The Lucerne Festival Orchestra has set new standards in the field of classical music.

The core of the orchestra is provided by the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, itself an élite body of players. Soloists like violinist Kolja Blacher, clarinettist Sabine Meyer, oboist Albrecht Mayer, violist Wolfram Christ, cellist Natalia Gutman, the Hagen Quartet and members of the Alban Berg Quartet to name just a few, make the Lucerne Festival Orchestra a star-studded ensemble.

Claudio Abbado is undeniably a supreme Mahler conductor and his best selling recordings with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra – symphonies No. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 (on Blu-ray No. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6) have already been released on EuroArts – have set new standards in interpretation of works by Gustav Mahler. Also the complete cycle of Symphonies Nos 1 – 7 is available as a Blu-ray disc box-set.

“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

“Has there ever been a suaver, more transparent Mahler performance or one in which everything stays so beautifully in tune? ... Abbado’s music-making is a celebration of the purest joy.” The Gramophone Magazine
