From 31 March to 2 April 2023, the Lucerne Festival takes place in spring as the Mendelssohn Festival. Benefit from 40% off the public transport journey.

Riccardo Chailly and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra’s performance includes Mendelssohn’s powerful symphony cantata “Lobgesang” (Hymn of Praise), allowing his music to enter into a dialogue with works by his composer friends Frédéric Chopin and Robert Schumann. In addition, Sergei Rachmaninoff, who chose to live in Lucerne, will be celebrated on what would be his 150th birthday: with a tribute by the duo Igudesman & Joo, who combine classical with comedy.
