Maya Beiser: Cellist

MAYA BEISER has been called “the queen of contemporary cello” by the San Francisco Chronicle, and The New Yorker magazine has called her a “cello goddess.”  Many people think of the music of Bach and other classical composers when they think of the cello instrument.  Maya Beiser sees so much more.  Her album “Uncovered” is her reimagination of songs recorded by greats in..rock music.  The album features her intrepretations of songs recorded by Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and others.

Maya Beiser may make you change the way you view the cello and her interpretations of the songs on “Uncovered” illustrate the connections between rock and much of the music around the world and the classical sounds from our past.
