“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

Recipient of a MacArthur “genius grant” Fellowship, Alisa Weilerstein has taken the world by storm with her virtuosic command and impassioned musicianship. Her recording of the Elgar & Carter cello concertos with Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin was named the 2013 Recording of the Year by BBC Music magazine, and her recoding of Dvořák’s Cello Concert topped the US charts in 2015. For 92Y she gives a marathon performance of Bach’s complete Suites for Solo Cello, one of the summits of the cellist's art.
