Krzysztof Urbański NY Philharmonic

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

In the 2018–19 season, American cellist Alisa Weilerstein, a 2011 MacArthur Fellowship winner, releases Transfigured Night on Pentatone, on which she is joined by Norway’s Trondheim Soloists for Haydn’s First and Second Cello Concertos and Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht. Two Scandinavian performances of the album’s repertoire with the same ensemble opened the season. In the spring she returns to Verklärte Nacht but in a chamber music version, when she tours Europe and the US with pianist Inon Barnatan, violinist Sergey Khachatryan, and percussionist Colin Currie. Also in the season she performs Shostakovich’s Second Cello Concerto with five different orchestras; tours the US playing Dvořák’s Cello Concerto with the Czech Philharmonic led by Semyon Bychkov, and plays the Schumann Concerto with the Rotterdam Philharmonic and Saint-Saëns’s First Cello Concerto, Britten’s Symphony for Cello and Orchestra, Richard Strauss’s Don Quixote, and Bloch’s Schelomo: Rhapsodie Hébraïque in cities ranging from San Diego to Vienna. Finally, she gives two performances of Matthias Pintscher’s new cello concerto, Un despertar, with the composer leading both the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. She performs Bach’s complete cello suites in Beverly Hills, Paris, Berkeley, for Boston’s Celebrity Series, and at Hamburg’s Elbiphilharmonie.

Ms. Weilerstein’s career milestones include an emotionally-tumultuous account of Elgar’s Cello Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic and Daniel Barenboim in Oxford, and a performance at The White House for President and Mrs. Obama. A champion of new music, she has worked on multiple projects with Osvaldo Golijov and Pintscher, and premiered works by Pascal Dusapin, Lera Auerbach, and Joseph Hallman. Ms. Weilerstein, whose honors include Lincoln Center’s 2008 Martin E. Segal Prize and the 2006 Leonard Bernstein Award, 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.
