Celebrity Concert with Raphael Wallfisch (cello) and John York (piano)

Brahms Sonata in E flat Op. 120 No2

Martinů Cello Sonata No 1 H277

Janáček Pohádka (A fairy tale)

Brahms Cello Sonata in F Op.99

One of the finest of cello and piano duos, Raphael Wallfisch and John York return to Ripon to open our new season.

Their programme juxtaposes two Brahms sonatas with masterworks of the Czech repertoire. The E flat Brahms sonata is more familiar in its original form as a clarinet sonata. The F major is probably his finest. The two Czech works, are each a delight to play and hear.

This programme mixes the genres 'beautifully and rather provocatively'. Raphael Wallfisch

'Raphael Wallfisch, cellist, and accompanist John York present a siren voice of seductive beauty”' Financial Times

'… Wallfisch gives the finest account on cello I’ve ever heard… and York voices every line with superb clarity and coherence, so crucial in this turbulent work…' BBC Music Magazine
