Claudio Abbado, Lucerne Festival Orchestra & Christine Schäfer

For many music lovers, Christine Schäfer’s Mozart interpretations are a revelation. Her artistry is as powerful as ever, as this program featuring Concert Arias by Mozart, with Claudio Abbado conducting his hand-picked Lucerne Festival Orchestra, documents.

It is a symbiotic artistic encounter between two great musicians and their exceptional interpretations of Mozart. It’s with grace, charm, and easygoing lightness that Claudio Abbado and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra are taking the “Haffner Symphony”, the first symphony that Mozart produced in Vienna. An interpretation showing yet again why Abbado was one of the most distinguished figures on the podium today.
