About the players

Raphael Wallfisch and John York’s first recital together was in Rangers House, Blackheath on 30 October 1983. Since then they have performed extensively both in the UK and throughout the world and 2018 marks 35 years of their duo partnership

This concert is a birthday celebration of the remarkable contribution to the wealth of music for cello and piano that they have brought to our concert platforms through live performance, and to our front rooms through their fourteen highly acclaimed duo recordings.

Raphael is one of the most celebrated cellists performing on the international stage. He was born in London into a family of distinguished musicians, his mother the cellist Anita Lasker-Wallfisch and his father the pianist Peter Wallfisch.

John was awarded the International Debussy Prize in Paris in1973 followed by an auspicious début at the Wigmore Hall. His career has taken him around the world as a soloist and as a chamber music partner.
