Performance Today

with host Fred Child

A Musical Family

Cellist Alisa Weilerstein is one of the rising stars in classical music right now. She's only 28, but has been getting rave reviews for quite a while now. In fact, one reviewer called her recent performance of Elgar's Cello Concerto "life-changing." We'll hear that performance of the Elgar, with Daniel Barenboim and the Berlin Philharmonic, from a concert in Oxford, England. We'll also hear a performance by Alisa Weilerstein's parents, violinist Donald and pianist Vivian.
