About

Igor Stravinsky inaugurated the era of musical neoclassicism with a sensational success. His Pulcinella continues to be uncommonly popular even today, primarily as a suite from the ballet of the same name – which makes this virtuosic orchestral piece the perfect choice for this fascinating MDG debut program featuring Joshua Weilerstein, the new principal conductor of the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne.

Apollon musagète and the rarely heard Concerto in D offer additional highly interesting insights into this important period in the great Russian composer’s oeuvre.

With Joshua Weilerstein the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne has truly passed the torch to a new generation. The young conductor follows in big footsteps, but continuity on the highest level is also a sure bet: after the pianist Christian Zacharias another outstanding instrumentalist, this time a violinist, has assumed the conducting duties with this renowned Swiss orchestra.
