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.

“A young cellist whose emotionally resonant performances of both traditional and contemporary music have earned her international recognition … Weilerstein is a consummate performer, combining technical precision with impassioned musicianship,” stated the MacArthur Foundation when awarding American cellist Alisa Weilerstein a 2011 MacArthur Fellowship. Ms. Weilerstein’s 2017–18 season includes performances of Schumann’s Cello Concerto with the Pittsburgh Symphony under Manfred Honeck and The Philadelphia Orchestra led by Christoph Eschenbach; Barber’s Cello Concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra led by Neeme Järvi and The Cleveland Orchestra under Alan Gilbert; and Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme with the New York Philharmonic led by Jeffrey Kahane. She also plays a series of duo recitals on tour with her regular recital partner, Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan, beginning at Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center and Carnegie Hall. Other concerto appearances include Shostakovich with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin led by James Conlon; Prokofiev with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Jaap van Zweden; Shostakovich and Dvořák on a U.K. tour with the Czech Philharmonic led by Jiří Bělohlávek; and Lutosławski’s Cello Concerto with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra led by Krzysztof Urbański.

Alisa Weilerstein’s career milestones include an emotionally tumultuous account of Elgar’s Cello Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic led by Daniel Barenboim in Oxford, England, and a performance at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama. An ardent champion of new music, she has worked on multiple projects with Osvaldo Golijov and Matthias Pintscher and premiered works by Pascal Dusapin, Lera Auerbach, and Joseph Hallman. Ms. Weilerstein’s 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.
