Alisa Weilerstein,

Cellist Alisa Weilerstein, hailed by The New York Times for "an ecstasy and a generosity that lift performance into the realm of pure happiness," communicates all the soul-searching and wittiness of Shostakovich's Concerto No. 1. The perfect complement arrives with the most cheerful of the four Brahms symphonies.

Casual Concerts are performed without an intermission and are followed by a party in the lobby. Mingle with musicians in a relaxed setting and enjoy live music by the Sultans of String.

  • Thomas Dausgaard, conductor
