“Whatever [Alisa Weilerstein] plays sounds custom-composed for her, as if she has a natural affinity for everything.”—New York
Inon Barnatan is “a player of uncommon sensitivity”—The New Yorker
The music is all Czech, but the styles are dazzlingly diverse. Cellist Alisa Weilerstein—a 2011 MacArthur “Genius” fellow—is joined by members of the New York Philharmonic and its artist-in-association, pianist Inon Barnatan, for a Czech chamber concert. Beyond the influence of the country’s folk songs, discover Brahms’ and Vienna’s impact on Dvořák, and the jazz-tinged, cosmopolitan dance music of Schulhoff and Martinů.
