Colorado Music Festival: Alisa Weilerstein Plays Dvorak’s Cello Concerto



Chautauqua Auditorium, 900 Baseline Rd, Boulder, CO 80302

Event Description

"The 2024 Festival season opens with the much-anticipated return of Alisa Weilerstein; here Weilerstein performs one of the most breathtaking works for cello. Later: Mendelssohn could not shake the 'festive air' of Italy while composing his Fourth Symphony, which he called 'the happiest piece I have ever done.' The program begins with a brief and evocative Masquerade; composer Anna Clyne drew inspiration from promenade concerts held in London’s pleasure gardens and their 'exotic street entertainers, dancers, fireworks,' and of course, masquerades. With Peter Oundjian, conductor; Alisa Weilerstein, cello."
