Raphael Wallfisch (b1953)

Son of German-born pianist Peter Wallfisch who taught at London’s Royal College of Music, Raphael Wallfisch has become an internationally-recognised solo cellist, as well as being part of a family of outstanding musicians. He trained first in London with Amaryllis Fleming, then with Amadeo Baldovino in Italy and Derek Simpson in London, ending up with Gregor Piatigorsky in California before making his first major appearance in 1974. His early experiences, as for many colleagues of his generation, were truly multicultural: Fleming, daughter of Suggia’s portraitist Augustus John, had herself studied with Pierre Fournier, Guilhermina Suggia and Pablo Casals, whilst Piatigorsky brought Russian and German influences and Simpson represented the British tradition.

Wallfisch’s prolific recording career encompasses many major items of the cello repertory, but is notable for promoting a number of lesser-known works, especially of British composers. His style is conventional by modern standards and generally light in tone. This works well in the Boccherini (2004) and Vivaldi (1994) works selected here, the former managing to avoid the strained qualities often heard in its virtuosic high-register passagework.
