The Lauenen Chamber Concerts Association, a small non-for-profit organisation based in Switzerland, grew as a result of luck and dedication. Joji Hattori and members of the Arenberg family met on a plane and started discussing the possibility of bringing chamber music to Lauenen, surrounded by peaceful and beautiful settings. Love of music, friendship and dedication made what is hoped to preserve: a plaform where musicians feel happy and where music can be discovered, respected and enjoyed.
As of today, the Lauenen Chamber Concerts Association has been honoured by the Artistic Direction of Joji Hattori, who discusses and chooses the program and persuades artists to come and rehearse for a number of days before playing in front of a full audience in the Lauenen chapel.
Chamber Music is really the core of the effort, while the spirit of the Association is to bring a relaxed, amicable and Artistically-focused touch. Thanks to generous contributors and anonymous donors, the Association has provided all the logistical support necessary for the realisation of more than 18 concerts to date.
