Celebrated young cellist Alisa Weilerstein presents Shostakovich’s two cello concertos, accompanied by the Bavarian Radio Symphony under Pablo Heras-Casado, in performances recorded live. Weilerstein worked on both these cornerstones of the repertory with legendary cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, for whom the concertos were written and who was a great friend of the composer. Here, she performs the intense, challenging and emotionally suppressed Cello Concerto No. 1, contrasted by the sarcasm and isolation of the Cello Concerto No. 2.

“Weilerstein follows outstanding Decca recordings of the Elgar and Dvorak concertos with this pairing, which illustrates her depth and range...Heras-Casado and the Bavarians match the sardonic bite of her playing: this is one of the best accounts ever recorded of a work we don’t hear often enough in concert.” --Sunday Times, 18th September 2016
“The playing is extremely accomplished…I do like the nagging insistence of the opening, and the Bavarian hornist is tonally one of the fullest and steadiest I have heard…brave to the Bavarian horns for their Janaceky whoopings around the nine-minute mark, and to Decca’s engineering for capturing such moments, and many others, in such ravishing detail” --Gramophone Magazine, October 2016
