How To ‘Uncover’ Classic Rock With The Cello

WBUR Boston


Maybe you like to come home and rock out to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd or Janice Joplin. But classical cellist Maya Beiser rocks out in a slightly different way.

Zeppelin's "Kashmir," is one of many rock songs Beiser "uncovered" on her 2014 album.

The songs were arranged by MIT professor and composer Evan Ziporyn, and Beiser will perform them Friday Sept. 25 at MIT Sounding.
