Krzysztof Urbański

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.

Entering her second season as artistic partner with the Trondheim Soloists, cellist Alisa Weilerstein joins the ensemble on two European tours this fall. Their first album, Transfigured Night (Pentatone, 2018), features Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht and Haydn’s cello concertos. Other season highlights include appearances with the New York Philharmonic, Tokyo’s NHK Symphony, Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra, and the Houston, Detroit, San Diego, and London symphony orchestras. She gives solo performances of Bach’s complete cello suites and joins Inon Barnatan in repertoire by Brahms and Shostakovich at London’s Wigmore Hall, Milan’s Sala Verdi, and Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw. Celebrating Beethoven’s 250th anniversary, she and Mr. Barnatan perform Beethoven’s complete cello sonatas on a US tour, and his Triple Concerto with violinist Guy Braunstein and the Dresden Philharmonic. Her recording of the latter with Stefan Jackiw, Mr. Barnatan, and Academy of St Martin in the Fields, led by Alan Gilbert, was released by Pentatone this fall.

Alisa Weilerstein’s recording of the Elgar and Elliott Carter Cello Concertos with Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin was named BBC Music’s 2013 Recording of the Year, and her recording of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto with the Czech Philharmonic topped the US classical chart.

Ms. Weilerstein’s career milestones include Elgar’s Cello Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic and Barenboim, and a White House performance for President and Mrs. Obama. She has collaborated with Osvaldo Golijov and Matthias Pintscher and premiered works by Lera Auerbach and Joseph Hallman. Alisa Weilerstein was awarded a 2011 MacArthur Fellowship, 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.
