”The brilliant idea of the initiator Urban Frye to open hotel for music students and guests in the most beautiful location on the Rigi is tempting in itself. The view of Lake Lucerne from the windows of the guest rooms is stunning. A special experience for us as guests was that you were not served by anonymous service staff during the day and during meals, but by charming and committed musicians. The team leader Claudia deserves great praise for ensuring that the complex hotel business ran smoothly. Every evening the students were assigned to tasks that were unfamiliar to them, such as croom service, kitchen help, lingerie and guest service, which enabled them to earn a welcome income. They had to devote about 4 hours a day to this, in the remaining time they could practice and relax in different formations and rooms. As a hotel guest, you were wrapped in a fluctuating sound carpet during the day and, as a music lover, you could also easily chat with the musicians. After a hike in this diverse mountain world, we felt at home when we returned to the Klanghotel.
The highlight of the day are the evening concerts in small chamber music formations. Here the professional skills of the individual players were shown. The “spontaneous” encores, in which all the musicians really appeared together, were particularly creative. The tuba player and musical all-rounder (piano, tuba and vocals) arranged well-known wedding melodies for the unusual line-up: 3 flutes, 2 bassoons, horn and tuba, violin, double bass and piano for 6 hands. Thanks to the use of computer music software, every musician had a transposed, print-ready sheet of music that was matched to his instrument. The musical evening program ended with thunderous applause.
We were impressed by the coherent management and the relaxed, friendly atmosphere among the students. There was a lot of laughing, playing music and talking. Happy and enriched, we drove home after our three-day stay.
