About Alisa Weilerstein:

Described by New York magazine as “arguably Yo-Yo Ma’s heiress apparent as sovereign of the American cello” for her natural virtuosic command, technical precision and impassioned musicianship, Alisa Weilerstein was born in 1982 into a distinguished musical family (her father Donald was first violin in the Cleveland Quartet; her mother is the noted pianist Vivian Weilerstein). She made her professional debut with the Cleveland Orchestra when she was 13 and her Carnegie Hall debut with the New York Youth Symphony in March 1997.
