Conductor

Joshua Weilerstein is the artistic director of the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne. Noted for his clarity of musical expression, exuberance, and deep, natural musicianship, he has conducted extensively in Europe and North America. He combines enthusiasm for a wide range of repertoire with an ambition to bring new audiences to the concert hall. In the 2017–18 season, Mr. Weilerstein makes debuts with the Bamberg Symphony, BBC Philharmonic, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and West Australian Symphony Orchestra. This season also features return engagements with the Milwaukee, Vancouver, and Melbourne symphony orchestras; the Oslo, Royal Liverpool, and Netherlands philharmonic orchestras; and Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France and Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. Joshua Weilerstein’s career was launched after he won both the First Prize and the Audience Prize at the 2009 Malko Competition for Young Conductors in Copenhagen. He then completed a three-year appointment as Assistant Conductor of the New York Philharmonic. Since then, he has steadily gained a national and international profile. Recent guest conducting engagements have included the symphony orchestras of Baltimore, Dallas, Detroit, Fort Worth, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, San Diego, Calgary, and Vancouver, as well as the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and the Aspen Music Festival, among others. In Europe, he has established strong relationships with the BBC and Danish National Symphony Orchestras; the Royal Liverpool, NDR Hannover, Oslo, Royal Stockholm philharmonic orchestras; and Swedish Chamber Orchestra. Elsewhere in Europe, he has conducted Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Czech Philharmonic, SWR Stuttgart, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France, Orchestre national de Lyon, and London Philharmonic Orchestra. Mr. Weilerstein believes strongly that the best programming combines traditional and contemporary repertoire: whenever possible, he endeavors to include at least one piece by a living composer in each of his programs. Committed to music education both on and off the podium, he was actively involved in Young People’s Concerts during his time as Assistant Conductor with the New York Philharmonic and served as concertmaster of Discovery Ensemble, a Boston-based chamber orchestra dedicated to presenting classical music to inner-city schools. He is the creator and host of Sticky Notes, a highly successful podcast aimed at music lovers and casual listeners alike.

“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.
