About

Among the most versatile of contemporary performers, cellist Raphael Wallfisch is especially celebrated as a passionate advocate of British music. Concertos by Elgar, Finzi and Walton lie at the heart of his repertoire, which also includes concertante works by Arnold, Bax, Bliss, Havergal Brian, Britten, Alan Bush, Geoffrey Bush, William Busch, Delius, Dyson, Foulds, Holbrooke, Ireland, Maw, Moeran, Andrjez Panufnik, Rawsthorne, Rubbra, Lionel Sainsbury and Hugh Wood.

He has expanded this genre by commissioning and premiering an impressive and eclectic array of new pieces by, among others, Richard Rodney Bennett, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Kenneth Leighton, James MacMillan, Robert Saxton, Giles Swayne, John Tavener and Adrian Williams.

All three items presented on this disc were written especially for Wallfisch.
