Orchestre de Chambre de LausanneThe Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne (OCL, Lausanne Chamber Orchestra) is a Swiss chamber orchestra of around 40 musicians based in Lausanne, Switzerland. It has a vast repertoire, from the earliest baroque to contemporary premieres. The founder Victor Desarzens (1942-1973) was followed by Armin Jordan (1973—1985), then Lawrence Foster (1985-1990), Jesús López Cobos (1990-2000) and Christian Zacharias (2000-2013). From 2015 to 2020, Joshua Weilerstein continued the work of his predecessors while at the same time positioning the OCL for the 21st century, programming classical and contemporary pieces and using new media. In autumn 2021, the renowned French violinist and conductor Renaud Capuçon became the orchestra’s artistic director.
The OCL has participated in the Festival of Aix en Provence since the second festival, has been a regular guest at the Enescu Festival in Bucharest, and has been invited by the Rostropovich Festival in Moscow. In addition to its tours in Germany and the USA, it has held several concerts at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, the BBC Proms in London, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, and the Berlin Philharmonie.
