February 22, 2018 by norman lebrecht


The Lucerne Festival, announced this morning, will host no fewer than four UK orchestras this summer – the LPO, LSO, CBSO and English Chamber Orchestra.

It will also feature the over-promoted British child composer, Alma Deutscher.

    The programme was announced at least two months ago (if not three) on their website !

      They’re holding the press announcement this morning…

    It’s actually 5 not 4, as the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain are giving the opening concert.

    She is not only over-promoted BUT also vastly overrated!

      @Allen — have you heard her opera or anything else she’s written?

      1. Adam says:

        I can’t wait to see her when she’s sixteen, and comes home to her parents smoking a fag, with a nose-ring, a Chinese tattoo, and pink dyed hair.

        I’d buy tickets just to see that. The rebellion is going to be worthy of an opera.

        1. buxtehude says:

          @Adam: Are you suggesting that her music trip is being forced on her by the parents?

      2. buxtehude says:

        I meant @Erich.

    Over promoted?

    No danger whatsoever of Sheku Kanneh-Mason being described that way, is there?

    I wonder why.
