Conductor

In 2014–15 Krzysztof Urbański enters the fourth season of his highly acclaimed tenure as music director of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Additionally, he continues as chief conductor of Trondheim Symfoniorkester, which has also appointed him artistic leader in recognition of the major contributions he has made; this season he takes the orchestra on tour to Poland for a second time, where they will open the 10th International Chopin Music Festival. Mr. Urbański also holds the post of principal guest conductor of the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. These concerts mark his New York Philharmonic debut. Last season, in recognition of the close relationship he has forged with Hamburg’s NDR Symphony Orchestra, the orchestra announced that Mr. Urbański would become its principal guest conductor beginning in the 2015–16 season. Together with the orchestra he will take part in the opening concerts of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie. In the 2013–14 season Krzysztof Urbański made his debuts with the Berlin Philharmonic and Chicago Symphony Orchestra. In his native Poland he participated in a televised performance with Sinfonia Varsovia to mark the 80th birthday of his compatriot Krzysztof Penderecki, leading the composer’s Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima in a concert on which he shared the podium with Charles Dutoit and Valery Gergiev. He also conducted the opening concert of the 2014 Beethoven Easter Festival. Future highlights include appearances with the London Symphony and Philharmonia orchestras, Munich Philharmonic, Orquesta y Coro Nacionales de España, Finnish Radio Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France, and Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchester. In North America, he appears with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, National Symphony Orchestra, and Toronto Symphony Orchestra. He also returns to the Schleswig-Holstein Akademie Orchestra and the Pacific Music Festival in Sapporo. Krzysztof Urbański graduated from the Chopin Music Academy, Warsaw, in 2007 and was the unanimous First Prize Winner of the Prague Spring International Conducting Competition. From 2007 to 2009 he served as assistant conductor for the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, working under music director Antoni Wit, with whom he also studied. He currently serves as adjunct professor of music (orchestral conducting) at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.

Cello

Cellist Alisa Weilerstein is the recipient of a 2011 MacArthur Fellowship. An exclusive recording artist for Decca Classics, her label debut, featuring Elgar’s and Elliott Carter’s cello concertos with Daniel Barenboim and the Berlin Staatskapelle, was named BBC Music magazine’s Recording of the Year 2013. On her second Decca release Ms. Weilerstein plays Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, which she reprises with the New York Philharmonic and Christoph von Dohnányi in these performances. Upcoming orchestral highlights also include Elgar with Dallas, Milwaukee, Stuttgart, and Tokyo’s NHK symphony orchestras, and The Cleveland Orchestra, London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, and Netherlands Philharmonic, as well as Haydn on a German tour with the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Shostakovich with England’s Hallé Orchestra, the Warsaw Philharmonic, and Orchestra of St. Luke’s at Carnegie Hall. In recitals in Boston and Aspen and at London’s Wigmore Hall she performs repertoire from Solo, her new Decca compilation of unaccompanied 20th-century cello music. The album’s centerpiece is Kodály’s Sonata, a signature work that she also performs on the sound track of If I Stay, a 2014 feature film in which she makes a cameo appearance as herself. Ms. Weilerstein’s career milestones include Elgar’s Cello Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic under Barenboim in Oxford, England, and a performance at the White House for the President and Mrs. Obama. An ardent champion of new music, she has worked with Osvaldo Golijov and Matthias Pintscher and premiered works by Lera Auerbach and Joseph Hallman. She appears at major music festivals worldwide, and regularly collaborates with Venezuela’s Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra and the El Sistema education program. Her honors include Lincoln Center’s 2008 Martin E. Segal prize and the 2006 Leonard Bernstein Award. She is a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music and Columbia University. Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, she is a Celebrity Advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. She made her Philharmonic debut in the summer of 2002 performing Saint Saëns’s Cello Concerto No. 1 during the Concerts in the Parks; she most recently appeared in December 2014 performing Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, conducted by Krzysztof Urbański.
