ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Hotel Baur au Lac, unofficial club for private bankers in Zurich, Switzerland. Still owned by the descendants of founder Johannes Baur, the 161-year-old Baur au Lac has a platinum pedigree: It was here that Austria's Empress Elizabeth summered with an entourage of 60. It was here that Richard Wagner performed the world premiere of Die Walküre, him self singing the first act, accompanied by his father-in-law, Franz Liszt, on the piano.
