Cellist Alisa Weilerstein and pianist Inon Barnatan join the Academy of St. Martin the Fields in a concert performance at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Mass.


One of the most capable and enduring chamber orchestras on the stage today, the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields comes to Massachusetts for a rare concert appearance in the acoustic splendor of Mechanics Hall. Presented by Music Worcester, the program features music by Britten, Bach, and Haydn. (See the complete program below), performed by musicians who routinely tackle the most challenging music for chamber orchestra and transform it into rich, vibrant sound.

Alisa WeilersteinDuring the first half of the program cellist Alisa Weilerstein, the daughter of New England Conservtory faculty members Donald Weilerstein and Vivian Hornik Weilerstein and a 2011 MacArthur Foundation Fellow, performs Franz Josef Haydn's Cello Concerto No. 1.

With a degree in Russian History from Columbia and several recordings, including an acclaimed accounting of the Cello Concertos by Edward Elgar and Elliott Carter with the Berlin Staatskapelle and conductor Daniel Barenboim, Alisa Weilerstein represents the vitality of a new generation in classical music.

Inon BarnatanThe second half of the program features pianist Inon Barnatan in J.S. Bach's Keyboard Concerto No. 1 in D minor. The Israeli-born, New York-based pianist's recording "Darknesse Visible" (after a piece by British composer Thomas Adès), was described by critic Jed Distler of ClassicsToday.com as one of the best of 2012, and the San Francisco Chronicle wrote that "His touch is both shimmery and full of fire."
