On the occasion of our fifth anniversary, we are thrilled and proud to announce that our festival has become a permanent addition to the calendar of international music lovers.
The Swiss Alps Classics is known for its beautiful, occasionally stunning locations in and around the mystical St. Gotthard Pass as well as the intimate setting it offers with world-class artists. Star pianists such as LANG LANG, Igor LEVIT or Katia and Marielle LABÈQUE, the soprano Olga PERETYATKO, the great violinists Benjamin SCHMID and Emmanuel TJEKNAVORIAN, who will be the conductor in 2021, as well as members of the VIENNA PHILHARMONIC have already graced the canton of Uri and enjoyed the Swiss Alps Classics’ family atmosphere.
The middle station Nätschen or the crystal hall of Sasso San Gottardo have previously served as extraordinary concert sites. This year, the Benedictine Monastery of Disentis promises to deliver a musical experience unlike any other. The picturesque setting of the Park Hotel Vitznau on Lake Lucerne will delight music lovers for already the third time.
For the festival organizers, the chance to showcase the cultural and touristic uniqueness of the region beyond the borders of Central Switzerland is a matter of the heart.
