Lucerne Festival Orchestra
With his very own "mysterious seductive power and legendary elegance" (Le Monde), Claudio Abbado opened the Lucerne Festival for the last time in the summer of 2013. Only a few months later, the world had to bid farewell to a monumental artist, humanist, great conductor and orchestra founder.
Even in the concert itself, documented here, lived a moment of farewell, as the three great works performed tell of the transience of life. The centerpiece of the Eroica is the funeral march revealing "abysses of shattering dimension" - an "intense experience" (Neue Zürcher Zeitung).
This record, the last audio-visual documentation of his work, captures once again the extraordinary atmosphere of vibrant emotionality that always emerged when Abbado created music with his "orchestra of friends".
