Alisa worked on both cornerstones of the cello repertory with the legendary cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, for whom both concertos were written, and who was a great friend of the composer. Here, she performs both works with longstanding collaborator Pablo Heras-Casado and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Watch here for a look inside the recording process with Alisa and Pablo.
