In 2019 the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA and Music Director Riccardo Chailly once again were on a major tour following their summer concerts in Lucerne. The Orchestra travelled to China for the third time in a row: from 15 to 17 October, it continued its Shanghai residency with three concerts. There were additional performances in Beijing (12-13 October) and in Shenzhen (19 October). In addition to Mahler’s Sixth Symphony – the foreboding “Tragic Symphony” whose finale features spectacular hammer blows – the program included Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto and symphonies by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. The young Russian pianist Alexander Malofeev was the soloist.
