Featuring Album of the Year Winner, Alisa Weilerstein!
We are so excited to see Alisa Weilerstein on the cover of BBC Music Magazine! The Caramoor Artist-in-Residence was awarded Recording of the Year for her recording of the Elgar Cello Concerto with Daniel Barenboim. Weilerstein talks with BBC Music Magazine about what went into creating the award winning recording. To put her mark on this renowned concerto, Weilerstein had to focus on creating her own interpretation. This meant paying attention to the music at it’s most basic without previous recordings or historical references at the forefront. Her artistic efforts certainly paid off as the results are award winning!
Alisa Weilerstein returns to Caramoor this Summer Season and will perform her award winning interpretation of the Elgar Concerto as the Festival Finale with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s under the conducting direction of Pablo Heras-Casado.
