Out Now: Transfigured Night

Available now: Alisa Weilerstein’s latest album Transfigured Night, released on PENTATONE.
Transfigured Night explores the stylistic contrasts of the First and Second Viennese Schools, by combining Haydn’s first and second cello concertos with Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht. 
Through Transfigured Night‘s unprecedented musical pairing, Alisa not only invites listeners to a new perspective on both Viennese composers, but also takes her own personal journey back in time to the city from which her grandparents fled in 1938. Read More
