“It’s easy to hear why her playing has so captivated the world…” – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
International superstar Alisa Weilerstein brings a combination of poetry and sheer virtuosity to the most famous cello concerto of all. Dvořák’s bold opening theme unapologetically sets the tone for this tour de force. “Weilerstein’s cello is her id. She doesn’t give the impression that making music involves will at all. She and the cello seem simply to be one and the same.” – Los Angeles Times Program Notes
