Caramoor Finale with Alisa Weilerstein and the Orchestra of St. Luke's
Sunday, August 03, 2014
Cellist Alisa Weilerstein capped a week-long residency at the festival as the soloist in Elgar's Cello Concerto.
Weilerstein's performance is bookended by two 19th-century favorites: the rousing Prelude to Act III of Wagner's Lohengrin, and Dvořák's ultra-melodic Symphony No. 8. Elliott Forrest hosts the broadcast.
