    Lucerne Festival Strings    

    This chamber orchestra was founded in Lucerne, Switzerland, in 1956 by the violinist, Wolfgang Schneiderhan and the conductor, Rudolf Baumgartner.  They frequently tour throughout the world and appear in many major music festivals as well as in their own concert series.  They are the Ensemble-in-Residence at the Lucerne Academy of Music.  The repertoire of the orchestra is very broad and they have premiered over 100 works by composers that include Krzysztof Penderecki, Iannis Xenekis and Bohuslav Martinu.  Soloists that have appeared with them include Sabine Meyer, James Galway and Reinhold Friedrich and their music director was Rudolf Baumgartner followed by Achim Fiedler, who took over from him in 1998.
