BCS - Raphael Wallfisch
BCS Next Concert

Raphael
Wallfisch

Raphael Wallfisch, Cello

With a discography of over 70 CDs and concert appearances with many of the world's greatest orchestras and conductors, Raphael Wallfisch is at the height of his powers as a performer. With a masterful technique and a soaring, singing sound that evokes a tradition continued from his teacher, Piatigorsky, he can now claim to be the most recorded contemporary cellist and perhaps the most recorded British string player in history.

Recently he has performed with the Auckland Philharmonia, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Vancouver Symphony, Västerås Sinfonietta and BBC Philharmonic as well as the London Symphony, London Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Warsaw Philharmonic, Czech Philharmonic and many others.

A popular visitor to major music festivals worldwide, he has played at the BBC Proms, the Edinburgh International, Aldeburgh, Spoleto, Prades, Bergen International, Montpellier, Pablo Casals, Wratislavia Cantans and Schleswig-Holstein Festivals. Raphael celebrates his 60th birthday in 2013, marked with a host of prolific recording releases and concert appearances.

As a performer and recording artist, perhaps more than any other cellist Raphael has championed British music, releasing critically-acclaimed recordings of works by MacMillan, Finzi, Delius, Bax, Bliss, Britten, Moeran and Leighton. Many of Britain's leading composers have worked closely with Raphael Wallfisch, several having written works especially for him. These include Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Kenneth Leighton, James MacMillan, Paul Patterson, John Joubert, Robert Simpson and Sir John Tavener.

Raphael Wallfisch plays a 1760 Gennaro Gagliano cello.
