The Lucerne Festival is charging visitors 100 Swiss francs* for the opportunity of watching the exotic Teodor Currentzis rehearse his group Musica Aeterna.
They are working very hard at creating a cult of Currentzis but this goes way off piste:
“Teodor Currentzis rehearses Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony”
If you would like to become better acquainted with Teodor Currentzis and see how he works with musicAeterna, you will not want to miss this workshop. In the course of a public rehearsal, he will refine his interpretation of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Afterward, Currentzis will offer insights into his understanding of Beethoven and explain how he arrives at his interpretation of this composer.
The festival, by the way, is no longer called the Lucerne Easter Festival but, noisily, TEODOR.
People are getting seriously piste off.
