Alisa Weilerstein joins the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and conductor Cristian Măcelaru for the world premiere performances of Pascal Dusapin’s Outscape, a Chicago Symphony co-commission. Performances take place Thursday, May 26 through Sunday, May 29 and Tuesday, May 31, part of a program that also includes Ibert’s Bacchanale and Holst’s The Planets.
Alisa Weilerstein will perform Matthias Pinscher’s Reflections on Narcissus with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the composer at the podium on Sunday, August 21 at this summer’s BBC Proms. She and Pintscher previously collaborated on the New York premiere of the work — inspired by the story of Narcissus, the mythic Greek hunter who fell in love with his own image — during the New York Philharmonic’s inaugural Biennial, presenting a “rhapsodic, compelling performance” (New York Times).
Alisa Weilerstein returns to the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra on March 3 and 4, performing Hindemith’s Cello Concerto under the baton of Marek Kanowski. The program will be streamed online on both evenings live from the Alte Oper Frankfurt — watch here. Find tickets and more information.
Two nights later, Alisa presents accounts of Haydn’s Cello Concertos in C Major and D Major with the Kammerorchester des Bayerische Rundfunks.
