Franz Liszt was not just a gifted pianist, composer, and teacher but also a master of improvisation, who regularly sent his public into frenzied states of ecstasy. So there's no question that he would have had a devilishly good time at Piano Off-Stage, our traditional 'festival within the festival.' Once again this year, acclaimed jazz pianists from all over the world will have Lucerne swinging until late in the night in the city's finest bars and restaurants, to the accompaniment of a drink and atmospheric candlelight. And if you'd like to get a wonderful overview of the keyboard virtuosos in store for Off-Stage 2011, make sure not to miss the grand opening event in the KKL, when all ten artists will be on hand to give a sample of their improvisatory skills. They will be personally introduced and interviewed by moderator Andreas Müller-Crepon of DRS-2 Radio and ' who knows? ' might even join together for a spontaneous jam session.
