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 as performed throughout the USA including at Lincoln Center, Weill Hall, and Bargemusic in New York City and at prominent venues in Washington, D.C., Cleveland, St. Louis, St. Paul, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, and more. The Trio made their London debut in 2004 at the Royal Academy of Music. They have been guests on National Public Radio's Performance Today and St. Paul Sunday, in addition to a live performance by Alisa and Vivian on NBC and a feature article in More Magazine. The Trio's 2006 CD for Koch Records featuring trios of Dvorak has received rave reviews in both Strings and Fanfare magazines and was featured on NPR's "All Things Considered." They have recorded the Janacek/Coxe Kreutzer Sonata and the Schumann g minor trio for Koch as well. Recently, the trio was featured in Symphony Magazine in its article on musical families. Outside of their invigorating explorations of the trio repertoire, the members maintain thriving careers at 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.
