Her tone is huge and deep, and she has a wonderfully pliable way of shaping singing lyricism.' Chicago Tribune of Alisa Weilerstein.
One of the world's most exciting cellists, Weilerstein makes her MSO debut in Tchaikovsky's exquisite homage to the classical spirit, and in particular to the music of his idol, Mozart.
Awarded the prestigious Elgar medal for his advocacy of the composer's music, Tadaaki Otaka directs Elgar's mighty Symphony No. 1, a grand, beautiful, gloriously involving orchestral showpiece that embodies, in the composer's words, 'a massive hope for the future.'
The concert opens with the world premiere of Barry Conyngham's tribute to his friend and champion and, for many years the MSO's Chief Conductor, Hiroyuki Iwaki.
