ICMA Award Ceremony & Gala Concert

Apr 15, 2024 | Wencke Wallbaum News ICMA Award Ceremony & Gala Concert

Statement of the jury:

"How a star is born? The collection "Herbert von Karajan - The Early Lucerne years" gives a possible answer, regarding one of the symbols of the art of conducting in the 20th century. The Internationale Musikfestwochen Luzern, later Lucerne Festival, gave in 1948 an opportunity to Herbert von Karajan. It was his first concert outside Germany, after the denazification process. His relation with the Swiss festival developed in time; these recordings made between 1952-1957, for the first time released on CD, show us a young, very talented and volcanic conductor, in beautiful remastered recordings that are keeping the original live sentiment and energy. A true discovery!"

After numerous enthusiastic reviews and awards from the international press, the production receives with the ICMA now one of the most important awards of the international music scene. We are very happy about this recognition!
