This week Alisa Weilerstein and Rafael Payare embark on a six city tour of New Zealand with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. Alisa and Rafael are thrilled to be making their New Zealand debut and will be touring an exciting programme featuring Mahler, Tchaikovsky and the wonderful Sinfonia Concertante by Prokofiev. The opening concert in Wellington on the 27th June will be broadcast on Radio New Zealand.
This tour marks the beginning of a busy summer for both artists. Alisa will be touring with the Czech Philharmonic to the BBC Proms, Rheingau Festival and Montreux whilst Rafael returns to the Castleton Festival and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, as well as making his debut with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo.
