Notes & Reviews:

Alisa Weilerstein returns with Shostakovich's cello masterworks: Concertos 1 & 2. Weilerstein's interpretation is underpinned by her meeting Rostropovich - a close friend of the composer and the cellist for whom both works were written - when she was 22, playing Shostakovich for him and absorbing his advice and wisdom. Alisa is joined by conductor Pablo Heras-Casado and the Symphonieorchester Bayerischen Rundfunks.
