‘When I sit in the orchestra and we do the Schoenberg together it feels like chamber music on a very large scale, and that’s the ideal thing’.

So says Alisa Weilerstein of the Trondheim Soloists, with whom she will perform R Strauss’s Prelude for string sextet from Capriccio, Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence for string sextet, Op 70 and Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 16th October.

 Alisa Weilerstein discusses her Sentimental Work in our November issue, out next week.
