Review: Critic’s Notebook: In two local concerts, Alisa Weilerstein shows why she is the next great cellist

When it is just Weilerstein and her cello, you can’t tell the two apart. You can see her seated, hugging her instrument, as a cellist must.

The sound might easily have come from her voice, her lungs and her being.
