Year End Debuts in US and Japan
Before returning to his home in London for the days leading up to Christmas, Alexander Shelley ends the year with two debuts: his first visit to the Pacific Symphony Orchestra in California and his first visit to Japan, where he will be working with Sapporo Symphony. For the three concerts in the Renée and Henry Segerstom Hall, Costa Mesa, Shelley once again teams up with cello shooting star Alisa Weilerstein, with whom he last year debuted with the Seoul Philharmonic. They will performing Dvorak’s masterful Cello Concerto to complete a concert in which two other hugely contrasting works share the stage: Handel’s Royal Fireworks Music and Debussy’s La Mer. The Saturday concert will be broadcast live across Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego on KUSC. The following week Shelley conducts a programme built around Brahms’s 1st Symphony and he will be joined by German Sebastian Manz, to perform Nielsen’s Clarinet Concerto. This concert marks Shelley’s Debut in Japan.
