Birthday Gala - Sir James Galway at 80
KKL Lucerne - October 24th
Sir James Galway will be celebrating his 80th birthday in December 2019. To mark this milestone he will be looking back on his brilliant career together with the Festival Strings Lucerne. Their shared history goes back to the 1970’s when they recorded the Mozart flute concertos together. Treat yourself to an astonishing evening on this very special occasion!
The Kammerakademie Potsdam and the Festival Strings Lucerne will be uniting for a cross-border chamber music project, allowing for a new ensemble to emerge through this town-twinning.
Soloists from both ensembles will form a string octet and will perform works by Mendelssohn, Mozart and R.Strauss. Click here for tickets and information!
