Special Program for Santa Barbara: The Complete Bach Cello Suites
Alisa Weilerstein, cello
In performances marked by intensity, sensitivity and a wholehearted immersion in each of the works she interprets, American cellist Alisa Weilerstein has long proven herself to be in possession of a distinctive musical voice. Granting Weilerstein the prestigious “Genius” Fellowship, the MacArthur Foundation recognized her as “a young cellist whose emotionally resonant performances of both traditional and contemporary music have earned her international recognition… a consummate performer, combining technical precision with impassioned musicianship.” Her thrilling program features Bach’s complete Cello Suites, a body of solo cello music that forever defined the genre and is one of the most transcendent and rewarding experiences for listeners.
