Youth is the future – LGT fosters talented young artists, dedicated to music
They range from 12 to 23 years of age and enthrall their audiences in Zurich and New York, Beijing, Moscow and Shanghai.
The LGT Young Soloists are an extraordinary ensemble: the youthful soloists work together as an orchestra, they learn from one another and gain valuable experience through their performances worldwide. Not only do they have practice playing on the world’s concert stages, making it easier for them to start a professional career, but with "Italian Journey" and "Russian Soul" they are also the first youth orchestra worldwide to have recorded albums with RCA Red Seal (Sony).
Young athletes and musicians have to be ambitious if they want to reach the top. But those who exaggerate their diligence and ambition ultimately lose their passion.
For the fourth time, the LGT Young Soloists performed onboard the MS Europa II, what an honour!
The LGT Young Soloists’ second CD was released at the beginning of June. In an interview, Alexander Gilman, Artistic Director and Founder of the orchestra, talks about what people can expect from "Russian Soul" and how the orchestra has evolved since the last album.
It is not every day that one is invited to the prestigious Bavarian Radio. Therefore, the LGT Young Soloists were particularly delighted to be featured in an episode of U21-vernetzt.
On July 2, 2017 the LGT Young Soloists appear together with the Zurich Boys’ Choir in a benefit concert for the day school Cantaleum.
Over the centuries the Princely Family of Liechtenstein was always in close contact with the music world. Princess Maria Josepha Hermenegilde of Liechtenstein (1786-1845) was a great patron of Joseph Haydn, who composed five masses for her, while Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote an extraordinary wind serenade for another royal figure from Liechtenstein, Prince Alois I (1759-1805).
Since 2013 this long tradition of culture sponsoring continues with the LGT Young Soloists. Through our commitment we offer the young artists an unique environment where they can further develop their skills. An exciting and promising project, which we support with great enthusiasm.
