Product Description

For over 20 years, the Berliner Philharmoniker have celebrated their foundation on May 1st with the annual Europa Konzert - this years concert takes place in Oxford. The orchestra under the baton of worldwide renowned musician Daniel Barenboim, welcome cellist Alisa Weilerstein who has attracted widespread attention for a playing that combines natural virtuoso command and technical precision with impassioned musicianship.

Review

Barenboim must feel a special link with the Elgar Cello Concerto because of his wife Jacqueline du Pre's iconic performances of the work.Here-after a noble account of the Meistersinger Act 3 Prelude-the young American cellist Alisa Weilerstein turns in an interpretation almost as charismatic. Barenboim has always been an excellent Brahmsian and he rounds off the concert with a richly satisfying account of the first symphony. Performance ***** Picture & Sound **** --BBC MUsic Magazine,Jan'11

See this for Wellerstein's unforgettable Elgar and the general thrill of May Day in Oxford. **** --Classic fm Magazine,June'11

Oxonian antics and a gripping Elgar-Barenboim's first since Jacqueline du Pre. --Gramophone.Aug'11
