Raphael Wallfisch is one of the most celebrated cellists performing on the international stage.. At the age of twenty-four he won the Gaspar Cassadó International Cello Competition in Florence. Since then he has enjoyed a world-wide career playing with the world’s leading orchestra and is regularly invited to play at major festivals such as the BBC Proms. He plays a 1760 Gennaro Gagliano, the 1733 Montagnana “Ex-Romberg” and an exquisite modern cello built for him by Patrick Robin.
