In 2022, Anne-Sophie Mutter performed with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra for the first time. Under the baton of music director Riccardo Chailly, the star violinist and the orchestra opened the summer festival in Lucerne in keeping with the festival theme of "Diversity" with a rousing interpretation of one of the violin concertos by Joseph Bologne, the Chevalier de Saint-Georges and one of the few black composers from the 18th century.

For Riccardo Chailly, celebrating Rachmaninoff in Lucerne is something dear to his heart. In 2022, he devoted himself to the Second Symphony and the Second Piano Concerto, the most famous of all four Rachmaninoff concertos. "The harmonic ideas are his special hallmark. One need only hear three chords to recognize his creative genius immediately," he once said of Rachmaninoff's timbres. Japanese pianist Mao Fujita took on this grandiose concerto’s emotional power and virtuosity. Since winning the silver medal in the XVI Chopin Competition in 2019, this exceptional young artist has been playing in the world's most renowned concert halls and received enthusiastic standing ovations in Lucerne. The concert closed with Sergei Rachmaninov's highly romantic Second Symphony whose yearning melodies won't leave your head.
