In the nearly 75 years of the Lucerne Festival’s existence – some 120,000 music lovers visit the festival every year. The annual parade of the world’s foremost orchestras began in the latter half of the 1950s with guest performances by the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonics. The 1970 Festival was the first to be given a special theme – an idea that has remained alive ever since. An annual array of artistes étoiles has graced the Festival’s program since 1999. An excellent new concert hall, designed by French star architect Jean Nouvel, has been at
the Festival’s disposal since 1998. The Festival was revitalized and reached a new flowering with the foundation of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA under Claudio Abbado, which has opened the summer season since 2003. And since 2004, the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY, headed by Pierre Boulez, has provided the Festival with its own educational institution, introducing highly gifted young musicians to the art of performing modern music. The LUCERNE FESTIVAL has been legally structured as a foundation since 1970.

In 1972 Ernst von Siemens, the grandson of the industrial entrepreneur Werner von Siemens, established the foundation that bears his name. Every year the Foundation awards the Ernst von Siemens Music Prize to a composer, performer, or scholar who has made outstanding contributions to the world of music. Known as the “Nobel Prize of Music,” the award has increasingly drawn international attention over the years. The Foundation awards millions of Euros to support
contemporary music projects in more than twenty countries all over the world. Along with commissioned works, concerts and events are also supported as well as educationally valuable projects that give children and adolescents access to contemporary music. In addition, numerous festivals receive yearly grants from the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation in recognition of their contribution to contemporary music.
