“Weilerstein is truly a phenomenon.”—The Telegraph (UK)
Cellist Alisa Weilerstein's passionate performance style and breathtaking technique have garnered fans around the world. Hailed as "Yo-Yo Ma's heiress apparent and sovereign of the American cello" by New York Magazine, Weilerstein is one of the foremost cellists of our time. Her published recordings include chart-topping albums as well as the recent winner of BBC Music’s “Recording of the Year” award.
This performance is a special chance to hear three of Bach’s beloved Cello 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. Weilerstein recently recorded all six suites, which became a best-selling album. Of the recording, The Guardian proclaims, an “exceptional cellist’s music emerges with sunlit clarity into its own vast space.”
