Raphael Wallfisch with LMP

Part of the London Mozart Players 2019/20 Season

Add to my Calendar 30-01-2020 19:30 30-01-2020 21:30 36 Raphael Wallfisch with LMP Virtuoso cellist Raphael Wallfisch, one of the most celebrated cellists performing on the international stage today, joins the London Mozart Players for an evening of sublime genre-spanning music that showcases two masterpieces of the cello repertoire.  Symphonies by the giants of the Classical era Haydn (‘Miracle’) and Mozart (‘Prague’) bookend great works for the cello by two titans of Romanticism, Schumann and Tchaikovsky. Schumann’s cello concerto boasts plenty of passionate melodies that soar against an unobtrusive orchestral accompaniment, particularly in the second movement with its passionate double-stopped surge – a golden moment in any cellist’s repertory. The Rococo Variations are the closest Tchaikovsky came to writing a cello concerto. Inspired by Mozart, whom he revered above all, Tchaikovsky dazzles with his virtuosic cello-writing which will take soloist Raphael Wallfisch on a beguiling journey through duets, cadenzas, cantabiles, waltzes, run and trills to an invigorating conclusion.    With concert appearances around the world, Wallfisch is at the height of his powers with a masterful technique and a soaring, singing sound that evokes a tradition continued from his teacher, Piatigorsky.  ‘Wallfisch gives the finest account on cello I’ve ever heard.’ The Strad  St John's Smith Square, London DD/MM/YYYY
