Alisa Weilerstein makes her return to the BBC Proms on July 19 to perform the UK premiere of Pascal Dusapin’s Outscape, a BBC co-commission with the Casa da Música Foundation (Porto), Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Opéra de Paris and the Stuttgart Opera. On this occasion, Alisa is joined by her brother Joshua Weilerstein, conductor and Artistic Director of the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne.
Outscape, written for Alisa, marks Dusapin’s second work in a cycle about nature, filling thirty minutes with vivacity. Also on the Proms program are Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique and “Le chaos” from Jean‐Féry Rebel’s Les éléments.
On July 14, Alisa makes a special pre-Proms appearance on BBC Breakfast, the United Kingdom’s most watched, award-winning morning news television program, for an exclusive performance and interview to highlight her 2017 return to Royal Albert Hall.
