The highly acclaimed Weilerstein Trio, the trio-in-residence at the New England Conservatory of Music, has established itself as one of the most dynamic and electric piano trios on the concert stage today. In the words of the Boston Globe, "passion is the hallmark of the Weilersteins' playing." Since their first public concert at the Round Top Festival Institute when cellist Alisa was six years old, the Trio has gained a wide following among diverse audiences. Hailed for its "luminous vibrancy" (Washington Post), the Trio has performed at Lincoln Center in New York City and at prominent venues in Washington, D.C., Cleveland, St. Louis, St. Paul, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Boston. The Trio made their London debut in 2004 at the Royal Academy of Music.
Outside of their invigorating explorations of the trio repertoire, the members maintain thriving careers as soloists, duo artists, and teachers - Donald and Vivian as faculty members at the New England Conservatory and the Juilliard School, Alisa as one of the most sought-after soloists of her generation.
