Eric Zeisl  — Concerto Grosso for Cello and Orchestra (1955-56)

Antonio Lysy, cello

Neal Stulberg, conductor

UCLA Philharmonia

Royce Hall, UCLA

General admission: $12; $5 UCLA faculty, staff and students (with ID)

This unique evening features a performance and live recording of Zeisl’s Concerto Grosso for cello and orchestra (1955-56), a work commissioned by Grigor Piatigorsky, but performed only once in 1959.  UCLA faculty cellist Antonio Lysy will be the soloist; UCLA Philharmonia will be conducted by its music director Neal Stulberg.  The performance will be recorded for eventual commercial release by Yarlung Records, and will be preceded by a round table discussion featuring Professors Lysy and Stulberg, Zeisl biographer and UCLA Professor Emeritus Malcolm Cole, the composer’s daughter Barbara Schoenberg and his grandson E. Randol Schoenberg.

This program is part of a multi-year project to produce a series of world-premiere recordings of Zeisl’s orchestral works.
