Alisa Weilerstein joins her husband, conductor Rafael Payare, and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra for Sergei Prokofiev’s Sinfonia concertante on Wednesday, February 17. “Let’s face it, Alisa Weilerstein can do no wrong,” wrote the Aspen Times of Alisa’s interpretation of this work at last summer’s Aspen Music Festival; “as impressive as Weilerstein’s technical command was, even more satisfying was how she made it all into an instrument spinning a tale, unfolding a saga.”
Alisa Weilerstein returns to the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on Thursday, January 28, performing Robert’s Schumann Cello Concerto under the baton of Principal Conductor Vasily Petrenko. The evening’s program at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall also includes Bartók’s Dance Suite and Dvořák Symphony No. 8.
Alisa Weilerstein makes her London Symphony Orchestra debut on January 17, presenting her “incandescent” (New York Times) interpretation of Elgar’s elegiac Cello Concerto. She reunites with conductor and frequent collaborator Pablo Heras-Casado for the concert at the Barbican, which also includes Dvorák’s Symphony No. 7 and Tchaikovsky’s Tempest Overture.
