Renee Fleming and Claudio Abbado perform Berg, Schubert and Mahler
Gala concert of the Lucerne festival

Alban Berg’s Altenberg Lieder with world star Renée Fleming is followed by a performance of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 7.

The Lucerne Festival Orchestra with Claudio Abbado as its conductor made triumphal headlines worldwide: from "the miracle of Lucerne" (Tagesspiegel) to "superb and ephemere" (Le Figaro). When Abbado and his newly founded Orchestra perform at the Lucerne Festival 2005, the whole musical world looks again to Lucerne.

In the press:

Die Welt

“Incomparably, a wonderful orchestra.”
