The Washington Post reviews Bach Cello Suites
"Bach's six beloved cello suites come alive anew in Alisa Weilerstein’s new recording."
"The 2011 MacArthur fellow has been delivering gorgeous performances and leading lively discussions about the suites on Facebook Live as part of her #36daysofbach project (and she also recently offered an elucidating walk-through of the prelude of Suite No. 1 in G major — a.k.a. “that famous cello song” — for Vox); but these accounts feel like a master class all by themselves."
