Crescendo Alisa Weilerstein3
CRESCENDO: 
Alisa Weilerstein

A cello recital of Bach and Kodály.



‘Alisa Weilerstein is a consummate performer, combining technical precision with impassioned musicianship,’ according to the MacArthur Foundation on awarding the American cellist the MacArthur Fellowship in 2011.



As a new mentor in the mentoring programme Crescendo she will perform in a variety of contexts during the Festival. Alisa Weilerstein has appeared with major orchestras throughout the United States and Europe.



In this solo recital in Grieg’s Villa she performs two great works for the cello: the darkest of Bach’s six cello suites followed by one of her signature works, Kodály’s Cello Sonata, which appears on her recent album Solo, acclaimed as an ‘uncompromising and pertinent portrait of the cello repertoire of our time’ by the French online publication ResMusica.
