The Bregenz Festival enthralls thousands of people every year, and is renowned for being committed to quality and its innovative way of thinking. These are values that LGT also promotes in private banking. And as an internationally recognized celebration of culture, the festival on the world’s biggest lake stage is a major attraction. This year, one of the world’s most popular operas will also be performed: “The Magic Flute” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The giant, technically sophisticated stage design as well as the unique acoustics will also impress thousands of visitors this summer.
Horse breeding and riding represent a cultural heritage which goes back thousands of years, yet which at the same time is modern. That is why these activities fit superbly with the corporate culture of LGT. The connections which the Princely House of Liechtenstein has with equestrian culture stretch back to Prince Karl Eusebius of Liechtenstein, who founded the Eisgrub stud farm in the 17th century. Today, LGT promotes sporting endeavor by sponsoring top-class equestrian tournaments as sponsor of the Vienna Masters, CSI Basel, Mercedes-CSI Zurich and CSI Ascona.
The LGT Young Soloists are in many ways unique. Young people aged 13 to 20, gathered in a group of highly gifted young string soloists. The german violinist Alexander Gilmann launched this project together with LGT Bank.
The LGT Young Soloists convince with their youthful, inspiring and fresh approach to music. Their goal is to perform together and to learn from each other. They rotate in performing as soloists, always accompanied by their own orchestra. Against this backdrop, it seems almost negligible that the orchestra consists of many nationalities with different backgrounds and cultures. The youngsters inspire through their enthusiasm and dedication to music.
