Cello Unwrapped at King’s Place, London
Raphael Wallfisch returns to Cello Unwrapped, this time with the Orchestra of the Swan for a special concert of British music, taking us from Elgar’s elegant Introduction and Allegro to the young Britten’s freshly inventive Variations on a theme by Frank Bridge. In between we encounter two rarities, Edmund Rubbra’s haunting Soliloquy and Ireland’s sonata, a darkly turbulent work illuminated anew in an arrangement for soloist and strings. Wallfisch will bring all the burnished intensity of his sound to Imogen Holst’s poignant response to a 17th century tune, The Fall of the Leaf.
‘Any more compellingly idiomatic or richly seasoned cello playing than this would be hard to contemplate.’ International Record Review
