OUT NOW | Cellist Raphael Wallfisch's New CD: 'Karl Weigl Cello Concerto & Sonata' [LISTEN]

CPO Records has announced the release of British cellist Raphael Wallfisch's new album: 'Karl Weigl Cello Concerto & Sonata'

CPO Records has announced the release of British cellist Raphael Wallfisch's new CD: Karl Weigl Cello Concerto & Sonata.

Recorded with conductor Nicholas Milton, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin and pianists John York and Edward Ruston, the disc features the world premiere recording of Austrian composer Karl Weigl's (1881-1949) Cello Concerto, Sonata for Cello and Piano -  and the Love-Song and Wild Dance.

''This CD of the cello music of Karl Weigl is part of my series, Voices in the Wilderness, in which I have recorded the cello concertos of nine Jewish composers who all fled the Nazi regime ..." Raphael has told The Violin Channel.

"Karl Weigl emigrated to the US and the cello concerto was never played until I recorded it on this CD ..." he has said.

"It is a large scale, lyrical and virtuoso work which was dedicated to my teacher, Gregor Piatigorsky - and it contains a particularly wonderful slow movement."
