“No one can love the country as much as I do,” insisted Beethoven. “For surely woods, trees, and rocks produce the echo which man desires to hear.” The composer takes us on a scenic walk with his “Pastoral” Symphony No. 6.

His scenes recall a visit to the countryside, a gentle brook, a “merry gathering of country people,” a sudden downpour, and ultimately feelings of gratitude to God. On the first half, Alisa Weilerstein returns to Detroit to perform Barber’s demanding Concerto for Cello.

When it is just Weilerstein and her cello, you can’t tell the two apart. You can see her seated, hugging her instrument, as a cellist must ... The sound might easily have come from her voice, her lungs and her being. ”
