Claudio Abbado was undeniably the supreme Mahler conductor of our time. With his Lucerne Festival Orchestra he has set new standards in the field of classical music, especially in the interpretation of works by Gustav Mahler.

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.

The DVDs and Blu-ray Discs of Claudio Abbado's Mahler symphonies recordings Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 have already proven to be true Best-sellers. On the occasion of Mahler's 100. Anniversary of Death (May 18), EuroArts will release a luxurious 4 Blu-ray Box set, including the Mahler Symphonies Nos. 1-7 with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and Claudio Abbado.

An aficionado must-have!

“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
