Cristian Măcelaru is joined by internationally acclaimed American cellist Alisa Weilerstein for a specially commissioned concerto by Pascal Dusapin with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on May 26, 2016.
"The piece has a very interesting combination of yearning lyricism and urgent drive. One could almost describe it as neo-romantic in that it is emotionally very open, and yet its orchestration and language is absolutely of today. There is an almost constant, very intricate rhythmic interplay between the orchestra and soloist that gives the piece a nervous energy, and it makes for some incredibly compelling writing." Alisa Weilerstein.
