Award winning recording of A. Panufnik’s Cello Concerto

“Cellist Raphael Wallfisch’s impeccable control over the long, sustained notes, lends the music a tense, grim and implacable atmosphere.” Classical Music Sentinel


“Raphael Wallfisch captures the work’s fervour and inner passions with complete conviction… Displaying complete control of Panufnik’s score cellist Raphael Wallfisch is a persuasive interpreter and plays beautifully.” MusicWeb International


“Raphael Wallfisch renders the solo cello part with grace and intensity” Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review


”The cello concerto, composed for Mstislav Rostropovich in the last year of Panufnik’s life and premiered posthumously, has a gentle, elegiac tone that dips back into the organic language of J.S. Bach, in a manner reminiscent of Alban Berg’s violin concerto. Raphael Wallfisch luxuriates in its textural depths.” Norman Lebrecht


“Raphael Wallfisch is fully in command of solo writing as conceived for (and not always ideally executed by) Mstislav Rostropovich.” International Record Review
