On stage with the Jupiter String Quartet

Ten years ago, the members of the Jupiter String Quartet were students at Aspen, playing Ultimate Frisbee and hiking in the woods between intense rehearsals.

This year, the Jupiter String Quartet came back to the Aspen Music Festival and School to coach young quartets and to find a little time for the outdoors in between concerts. Listen to their performance and conversation with Fred Child at Harris Hall in Aspen.

On stage with Alisa Weilerstein

Cellist Alisa Weilerstein doesn't remember her first trip to Aspen -- but not because it was forgettable. It's simply not possible to take memories from your infancy with you into adulthood.

In this conversation with PT host Fred Child, Weilerstein discusses the moments and obstacles that shaped her as a musician. She also performs a tango improvisation by Osvaldo Golijov, which had the entire audience imagining a walk down the cobbled streets of Buenos Aires.
