In Unsuk Chin’s Concerto for cello and orchestra, “a competitive tension between soloist and orchestra occupies centre stage”, as the composer puts it. Staatskapelle Berlin and the American cellist Alisa Weilerstein will take on this work at Musikfest Berlin. With them on the podium will be Venezuelan conductor Rafael Payare, who after the interval will present the Berlin audience with a symphonic heavyweight that is equally late Romantic and modern: Gustav Mahler’s Fifth Symphony.
