Overview

With the first two tutti chords of the “Eroica”, which strike like blows from out of nowhere, Beethoven opened up a whole new world in the symphonic genre. Confident and self-assured, he wrote to his publisher in 1802, “I am not satisfied with my previous works; from now on I want to tread a different path.” One could almost speak of a “zero hour” in classical symphonic music, the beginning of something entirely new, greater in expression, more expansive in its passion and more triumphant in its resolve. The title page reads “Sinfonia eroica” – a heroic symphony composed to celebrate the memory of a great man. The thematic material of the symphony seems to reveal his identity. It is partly taken from Beethoven’s ballet music, “The Creatures of Prometheus”, evoking the memory of the mythological Prometheus, the “forward thinker” who wants to bring about intellectual emancipation through education and freedom through art. It also evokes the ideal of the true, free and comprehensively educated human being. Beethoven found himself and his moral-aesthetic stance in this: “There is nothing nobler than to approach the Deity more closely than others and from there to spread the rays of the Deity across the human race. These rays still strike us directly today in every performance of the “Eroica”.

Venue Info

KKL Luzern - Lucerne
Location   Europaplatz 1

KKL Luzern’s spectacular architecture designed by Pritzker Prize winner Jean Nouvel and the quality of its facilities set this venue apart from more traditional culture and convention centres. Its trade-mark is the common theme of culture, conferences and culinary choices – the complete experience orchestrated under the famous roof. The building is situated in the heart of Switzerland, only one hour by train from Zurich Airport, within walking distance of Lucerne’s finest hotels and a few sheltered steps from the international railway station. It is the perfect venue for your next premium event, such as product launches, anniversary celebrations and award ceremonies, high-profile meetings, receptions and banquets.

Concert Hall
The showpiece of the KKL Luzern is its renowned Concert Hall with 1,898 seats and acoustics that provide incredible sound and inspire the world’s leading conductors, orchestras and soloists to perform at their best.

Conventions
The outstanding Concert Hall with its multifunctional usage, is also an exciting possibility for conventions. A wide screen is hidden above the stage and may be lowered for awards, product presentations and other events. Interpreting booths and excellent infrastructure are at hand for a most memorable convention or meeting or live television broadcast.

Two water canals frame the Lucerne Hall, a venue that is also unique in its adaptability and convertible for 200 up to 1,800 guests. It can be used for a variety of settings including product presentations, congresses, concerts and banquets. With its appropriate audiovisual facilities, variable height staging and mobile rostrum, all combined with the deliberately simple design of the hall, the organizer will find creative freedom to style the event.

The Auditorium for up to 271 listeners, too, is equipped with state-of-the-art congress installations and, like the Lucerne Hall, provides an attractive setting for conferences. Event organizers are also increasingly discovering the Crystal Lounge, the attractive meeting point in the KKL Luzern. It boasts an oval-shaped bar that can be moved around the space, allowing for maximum flexibility and turning the lounge into a premier events venue.

Culinary experiences
The cuisine facilities of the KKL Luzern offer organizers and guests all kinds of catering options and total culinary experiences. Packages and offers – such as refreshing time-outs, cocktail receptions for networking, stand-up lunches, seated dinners or exclusive lounge experiences – can be tailored to the organizer’s specific needs.
