“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 2011 MacArthur “genius grant” Fellowship, Alisa Weilerstein returns to 92Y to perform Bach’s complete Suites for Solo Cello in a single evening. Ms. Weilerstein has established herself as one of the foremost artists of her generation. “She and the cello seem simply to be one and the same,” said the Los Angeles Times, a sentiment that recurs wherever she performs, on both sides of the Atlantic.
