Aspen Music Festival: Fragments II: A Recital with Alisa Weilerstein



Harris Concert Hall, 960 N 3rd St., Aspen, CO 81611

Event Description

"Alisa Weilerstein is one of the most celebrated cellists of our time. Her extraordinary artistry, emotional commitment, and interpretive depth have made her an international favorite. "Fragments" is her groundbreaking, multi-year project for solo cello that weaves together the 36 movements of Bach’s solo cello suites with 27 newly commissioned works. The resulting collection is divided into six Fragments, each an hour long and blending five to six composers. Within each Fragment, individual movements from a single Bach suite are thoughtfully integrated with selected new works to create a distinct emotional arc. Enhanced by responsive lighting and scenic architecture, the music is performed without pause and without a program, making for a wholly original and immersive audience experience."
