This November, WQXR returns to the Lucerne Festival in Switzerland. Founded in 1938, this festival attracts many top-name classical soloists and orchestras from around the world. Concerts were recorded in the Lucerne Hall of the KKL (Kultur und Kongresszentrum Luzern) on the banks of Lake Lucerne.
WQXR's 2016 Lucerne Festival broadcasts air at 9 pm on Tuesdays in November.
Support for these broadcasts comes from the American Friends of the Lucerne Festival.
