When the young American cellist Alisa Weilerstein first appeared with Orpheus in 2010, her genius was beyond question—a quality the MacArthur Foundation confirmed the next year when they awarded her a Fellowship (a.k.a. “genius grant”) and declared her “a consummate performer, combining technical precision with impassioned musicianship.” While Schumann’s Cello Concerto is the product of a brilliant composer on the brink of insanity, bright talents found their voices early in Mendelssohn’s refreshing Nocturno for winds, Webern’s aphoristic Five Movements for strings, and Schubert’s elegant symphonic salute to the powerful influences of Rossini, Haydn and Mozart.

Program:

MENDELSSOHN: Nocturno for Winds

SCHUMANN: Concerto for Cello

WEBERN: Five Movements for Strings

SCHUBERT: Symphony No. 6
