Sunday, September 22 at 6 pm, Q2 Music presents the third of four performances recorded live at the 2013 Lucerne Festival in Switzerland.

The program features seven milestones of vocal and instrumental modernism – from Anton Webern, Alban Berg, Luciane Berio, Igor Stravinksy and Bela Bartok – performed by the Lucerne Festival Academy Orchestra and conductor Pablo Heras-Casado, who has taken over concerts scheduled to be conducted by Pierre Boulez in light of the venerable conductor's recent shoulder injury.
