The Lucerne Festival Academy is many things in one: a master school for the music of our time, a laboratory for the future, and an international network. Over a period of three weeks, you will work on a diverse repertoire that ranges from modern classics to brand-new scores. Leading performers of contemporary music serve as coaches and offer in-depth workshops. The Contemporary Leaders, who are former Academy members, will also be on hand as mentors during rehearsals to pass on their experience. All participants of the Academy play in the Lucerne Festival Contemporary Orchestra (LFCO) and additionally join together in various ensembles to perform events as part of the Festival's related programming.

One focus for the summer of 2023 will be on the work of the German composer Enno Poppe. As composer-in-residence, he will conduct not only his own works but also Mathias Spahlinger's monumental orchestral piece passage/paysage. The arc of the programming in general ranges widely. You will have an opportunity to study works with Susanna Mälkki: namely, Unsuk Chin's Šu and Igor Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du printemps. You will also perform the world premieres of new scores by Jessie Cox, David Moliner, and Hovik Sardaryan and prepare Georges Lewis’s Minds in Flux under the direction of Ilan Volkov.
