Alisa Weilerstein signs contract with Pentatone

The American cellist Alisa Weilerstein, who has recently become an Artistic Partner of Trondheim Soloists, has signed an exclusive multi-album deal with the Pentatone label. We hope to review her first Pentatone recording in the not too distant future. The new album will pair masterworks of the First and Second Viennese Schools; namely, two Haydn concertos and Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht.

After their first joint release on Pentatone, Weilerstein and the ensemble look forward to touring Scandinavia together this summer, with subsequent tours of Europe and the U.S. planned for seasons to come.

Previously Alisa Weilerstein has recorded with Decca and we have admired her recordings of Elgar, Dvořák, Carter and Shostakovich.
