The cellist ‘beguiled’ in Frankfurt
Congratulations to Alisa Weilerstein for the success of her opening concert as ‘Artist in Residence’ with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra. Alisa’s ‘first class’ performance of the Walton Cello Concerto with Marin Alsop was praised for its ‘beguiling beauty of tone’, ‘smooth line’ and ‘emphatic intensity’. Alisa returns to Frankfurt in February 2012 for a performance of the Prokofiev Cello Concerto with Paavo Jaervi. This residency launches an exciting season for Alisa which includes, amongst others, engagements with the Berlin Staatskapelle and Daniel Barenboim as well as concerts with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Sydney Symphony, Los Angeles & New York Philharmonics and the Philharmonia Orchestra in London.
