Lucerne Symphony Orchestra

As Switzerland’s oldest symphony orchestra, the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra (LSO) has gained an international standing that extends far beyond its home territory. Strongly anchored in Lucerne, a city with a worldwide reputation for music, the LSO offers a number of annual concert cycles and acts as the orchestra-in-residence of the Lucerne Theatre.

Leading conductors such as Neeme Järvi, Sir Neville Marriner, Leonard Slatkin and Vasily Petrenko are regularly invited to take charge of specific concert cycles.

The LSO’s concerts have long featured soloists of international renown – these include Renaud Capuçon, Hilary Hahn, Gidon Kremer, Viktoria Mullova, Martha Argerich, Lang Lang, Radu Lupu, Maria João Pires and Krystian Zimerman.

The Lucerne Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1806. As a dynamic ensemble with a 200-year history, it best understands how to leverage creativity within tradition and innovation. The LSO attacks the classical-romantic repertoire with unabashed curiosity; its focus on individual composers gives rise to creative cycles of their works, which has the effect of deepening audience appreciation of the music. In addition, the orchestra takes every opportunity to highlight the rarities of the repertoire, broadening the horizons of its eager audiences and embracing music of a contemporary character.
