“Love and be amazed – that is sustainable”

«We have to listen and look better. You have to love things and be amazed – like children. With this attitude you can have an impact and be sustainable. ” When the Swiss clarinetist Reto Bieri talks about sustainability, his passion for the topic becomes palpable. “Maybe it’s this homesickness for the future,” he muses.

What is ultimately sustainable about music? The “Musicians for Future” project, which the Lucerne Festival and Zurich are jointly launching, is dedicated to this question.

Music for the next generations

Lucerne Festival has been committed to sustainability for over 20 years: for the coming generation of artists, for tomorrow’s audiences, for contemporary music, for diversity and social commitment. Together with Zurich, the Lucerne Festival is now developing this important focus further on various levels and adding the area of ​​climate protection. The initiative is supported by prominent classical music artists. In addition to Reto Bieri, pianist Igor Levit and the young conductor Johanna Malangré are ambassadors of the campaign as “Musicians for Future”.

Together we create sustainability

“Musicians for Future” wants to stimulate a discussion on the topic of sustainability, inspire the audience and motivate them to make a contribution to a better future. At, the artists share their ideas about sustainability and a better future with us. On August 11 and 23, two panel discussions on the topic will take place as part of the Lucerne Festival. The “Musicians for Future” talk about the social, cultural, political and ecological aspects of sustainability.

“For me, sustainability is actually taking care of everything that is already there,” says clarinetist Reto Bieri. Together, the Lucerne Festival and Zurich are committed to maintaining our planet and creating new perspectives for future generations.
