Raphael Wallfisch receives a 2015 International Classical Music Award for his recording of Andrzej Panufnik’s Cello Concerto! His co-partners are Lukasz Borowicz, conductor, and the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
”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
