Alisa Weilerstein – Elgar Cello Concerto (Excerpt)

Weilerstein tackles the famous Elgar Cello Concerto with Daniel Barenboim conducting. They recorded the Cello Concerto together for a new and much-anticipated album – something made all the more notable considering Daniel Barenboim was married to Jacqueline du Pré, legendary cellist who famously made the piece her own before succumbing to multiple sclerosis.

I was lucky enough to watch Alisa Weilerstein play this with the Hallé Orchestra late last year, and was blown away.
