More Details:

  • Dvořák, the most famous Czech composer, wrote his Cello Concerto in New York City.
  • One of the treasures of the Weilerstein family album is a picture of Alisa, about 3, playing a cereal box cello; she started cello lessons at age 4.
  • Weilerstein holds a degree in Russian history.
  • Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5 is arguably his most popular work, and the Minnesota Orchestra’s 2012 recording of it won enormous critical and audience praise.
