The City Light Symphony Orchestra, founded in Lucerne in 2018, presents its debut album with the 100-minute program “Spotlight on John Williams“. For the project acclaimed soloists such as Valentine Michaud, Reinhold Friedrich and Paul Meyer could be assigned. Together with the 90 musicians of the City Light Symphony Orchestra and the up-and-coming conductor Kevin Griffiths, they recorded a selection of film music masterpieces by Hollywood icon John Williams in the concert hall of the KKL Luzern in September 2020 – with a deliberate focus on his great stylistic diversity.

Recording sessions in the concert hall of the KKL Luzern with its world-class acoustics

For conductor Kevin Griffiths, the recording sessions for this album marked “one of the most incisive events in the young history” of the City Light Symphony Orchestra. After a seven-month lockdown break, he spent ten days working more intensively with the reunited musicians than ever before. The result is the album “Spotlight on John Williams” – a dream project of the orchestra and its manager Pirmin Zängerle. He saw the opportunity to collaborate with several renowned soloists for this project during the time without concerts due to the pandemic. In addition, the concert hall of the KKL Luzern with its outstanding acoustics could be booked for recordings over the course of several days. Zängerle: “The fact that the musicians’ were not fully booked certainly helped to engage so many renowned soloists such as Valentine Michaud, Reinhold Friedrich and Paul Meyer. No one wishes more fervently for a live audience back than these musicians, meanwhile recording music provided a welcome opportunity to create a production of the highest professional standard.”
