Alisa Weilerstein solos in Saint-Saëns’s First Cello Concerto, an exploration of the sonorous voice of the instrument, at turns lyrical, delicate, and dramatic. Hear the New York Philharmonic in Dvořák’s Sixth, a delightful combination of folk tunes from the composer’s beloved Bohemia (including a whirling furiant) and echoes of the grand symphonic tradition he inherited from Beethoven and Brahms.
