Bookmark and Share

Alisa Weilerstein's new recording for Decca/Universal Music Classics features the music of Antonín Dvořák, and explores works created during the time Dvořák spent in the United States. The disc features his Cello Concerto in B minor and Silent Woods, both recorded with Jiří Bělohlávek and the Czech Philharmonic. Also included on the album are arrangements of "Song to the Moon" from Rusalka, and the song Goin' Home, written by one of Dvořák's pupils and based on the melody from the Largo movement of his "New World" Symphony. "Song to the Moon" and Goin' Home were recorded in New York City at the American Academy of Arts and Letters with Russian pianist Anna Polonsky. Ms. Weilerstein joins WDAV-Davidson NC: 'Biscuits and Bach' host Rachel Stewart this Sunday March 2, to talk about the recording.
