„It is simply different, having your best friends around you. Everyone is here, to enjoy the music-making, to have fun, to play music with enthusiasm and passion. Everyone is willing to do the most craziest things, I am asking them to do, representing the works: to fly, to go through fire.‟ Claudio Abbado on his collaboration with the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA
