Bach Cello Suites 1, 3, & 5
“Weilerstein is truly a phenomenon.” —The Telegraph (UK)
One of the greatest cellists of all time, and the most popular cello work of all time, in one performance. Hailed as "Yo-Yo Ma's heiress apparent and sovereign of the American cello" by New York Magazine, Weilerstein’s published recordings include chart-topping albums as well as the recent winner of BBC Music’s “Recording of the Year” award for her recording of the Bach Cello Suites. This performance is a rare chance to hear three of those suites—Nos. 1, 3, and 5. Holding a very special place in the musical canon, these unaccompanied suites are a musical touchstone, particularly the beloved Suite No. 1, which has been hailed as the greatest cello work of all time.
Don’t miss this special night of music, promising to be a highlight of the season.
