LuganoMusica and the music of our time
LuganoMusica has commissioned three composers to contribute to the 2017-2018 season: Francesco Hoch, Jörg Widman and Fabio Vacchi.
Francesco Hoch’s piece was composed specifically for the LAC, taking into account the architecture of this concert hall, to which the work is dedicated (16 September 2017).
In association with other international concert venues (New York, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Madrid, Essen and Salzburg), LuganoMusica commissioned Jörg Widman to write a quintet for clarinet and strings (25 January 2018).
Fabio Vacchi’s contribution to the 2017-18 season is a new piece for piano solo that will be performed by Andrea Lucchesini on 6 February 2018.
In the field of contemporary music, LuganoMusica will also offer the chance of hearing for the first time in Switzerland a piece by Olivier Messiaen which rediscovered after this great French composer’s death (11 November 2017).
In the course of the first two seasons, an inquisitive, stimulating and inventive infiltration of contemporary aesthetics – built around some of the most fascinating classical programmes on offer in the concert hall – was clearly perceptible. With a new appearance and hourly position, this series of six concerts rereads and replaces great names of music history in the heart of modern times.
