The LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY was founded in 2004 by Pierre Boulez in conjunction with the Festival’s executive director Michael Haefliger. Since then, some 130 highly gifted musicians from all over the world have gathered together every summer in Lucerne. Working together in daily rehearsals, the participants are trained in basic skills for performing contemporary music. The teaching staff is made up of members of the Parisian “Ensemble intercontemporain”, one of the most celebrated ensembles in the field of modern music.
The 2010 Academy repertoire was recorded live during rehearsals and concerts of the Academy during the summer of 2010. This double CD is the only audio recording of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY Orchestra under the baton of maestro Pierre Boulez.
