About

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".
