Alisa Weilerstein: Fragments 2

Thursday, November 16, 2023 at 7:30 PM
The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center – Baker-Baum Hall
All Ages
$58 to $98

Renowned cellist Alisa Weilerstein returns for the second installment of her groundbreaking, multi-year project Fragments. This innovative series 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, to be released independently over several seasons—the first of these graced our stage in the 2022–23 season. Within each Fragment, individual movements from a single Bach suite are thoughtfully integrated with selected new works to create a new 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.
