Carl F. Bucherer Supports the American Friends of Lucerne Festival at Carnegie Hall Gala in New York City

By Zahra Al-Kateb

Carl F. Bucherer, the independent Swiss watch manufacturer, crafts exquisite timepieces that reflect the pioneering spirit of its founder and the creative character of its hometown Lucerne. In honour of its historic and exuberant hometown, Carl F. Bucherer is proud to support the renowned Lucerne Festival and the American Friends of Lucerne Festival for the third consecutive year, making it possible for up and-coming talents to lUntitledearn from established musical geniuses in the heart of Switzerland.

The gala fundraising event took place in the prestigious concert house Carnegie Hall in New York City. First-class private concerts were the highlight of the evening, performed by the outstanding alumni of the Lucerne Festival Academy and the world famous pianist Yefim Bronfman. A special moment came when Dr. Hubert Achermann was honoured. The chairman of the board of the Lucerne Festival and the Friends of Lucerne Festival has been crucial in advancing the development, the international profile of the festival, and of the city Lucerne, as well. As a tribute to his service, he received an exclusive timepiece by Carl F. Bucherer: the Manero PowerReserve. The indefatigable model sports a power reserve that lasts more than 55 hours, driven by the signature peripheral rotor of the in-house movement, CFB A1011.

The proceeds of the benefit event will go towards the most talented young musicians, paving their way to visit the Lucerne Festival Academy for the summer, the prestigious Swiss musical institution founded by Pierre Boulez. At the academy, musical geniuses such as Wolfgang Rihm, Matthias Pintscher, and Anne-Sophie Mutter will mentor the growing talents and broaden their perspectives and performances concerning the new music of the 20th and 21st century.
