Musicians often set great store by their artistic genealogy – having a teacher who was taught by a musician who studied with a great performer of the nineteenth century, for example. But the genealogical chain rarely comes with as few links as it does in the case of Alisa Weilerstein and her connection to the composer Dmitri Shostakovich, whose two great cello concertos she records for Decca Classics. In fact the chain has just one link. Weilerstein was mentored by the legendary cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, for whom both concertos were written, and who was a great friend of the composer. For authenticity of insight and authority of information, Weilerstein's credentials could hardly be more auspicious.
