Piano Off-Stage – The Jazz Festival Within a Festival

WEDNESDAY, 22 TO SUNDAY, 26 NOVEMBER 2017

It has just 88 keys but thousands of possibilities: “The piano can do anything,” as the great Alfred Brendel once proudly remarked. For example, the piano is ideal not only for classical music but for jazz as well. Every year Piano Off-Stage, the small but choice Jazz Festival in the Festival, attracts internationally renowned masters of improvisation to Lake Lucerne.

They explore the entire panorama of piano jazz in Lucerne’s finest bars including the National Bar. It’s both thrilling and relaxing: the ideal way to bring the concert evening to a close.
