About

“... composed for Janós Starker, it is not hard to see the appeal. Unlike many film composers, Rózsa understood that writing in abstract demanded a different approach, not least in placing his melodic genius at the service of the musical argument. Expertly balanced between soloist and orchestra, the Hungarian flavour hints at what a late Bartok cello concerto might have sounded like" - Gramophone (Cello Concerto)

"... written originally alongside the score of Ben-Hur for Heifetz and Piatigorsky. Raphael Wallfisch clearly has an affinity with these splendid works and the BBC Concert Orchestra are on great form … Graffin partners Wallfisch adroitly … warmly recommended.” - Gramophone (Sinfonia concertante)
