Raphael Wallfisch

Cello Soloist

‘I find that the wonderful qualities of Larsen strings, that are depth, brilliance and flexibility in all ranges of the cello greatly enhance each instrument’s inherent qualities.
The recent spectacular developments reflected in the Magnacore® strings put Larsen in a class of their own!’

About Raphael

With a discography of over 70 discs Raphael Wallfisch is one of the most recorded classical artists in the world. A BBC survey named Wallfisch’s recording of the Dvorak Cello Concerto the best recording of the work in the past 25 years. 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.

Raphael Wallfisch

At an early age, Raphael was greatly inspired by hearing Zara Nelsova play, and, guided by a succession of fine teachers including Amaryllis Fleming, Amadeo Baldovino and Derek Simpson, it became apparent that the cello was to be his life’s work. While studying with the great Russian cellist Gregor Piatigorsky in California, he was chosen to perform chamber music with Jascha Heifetz in the informal recitals that Piatigorsky held at his home.

Raphael plays a 1760 Gennaro Gagliano, the 1733 Montagnana “Ex-Romberg”.
