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.




  • Jean says:

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

  • Eric says:

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

  • erich says:

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

  • Allen says:

    Over promoted?

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

    I wonder why.
