Miklós Rózsa: Cello Concerto; Sinfonia Concertante

Raphael Wallfisch – cello
Philippe Graffin – violin
BBC Concert Orchestra
Barry Wordsworth

 


“(Cello Concerto) composed for Janós Starker, it is not hard to see the appeal. Unlike many film composers, Rózsa understood that writing in abstract demanded a different approach, not least in placing his melodic genius at the service of the musical argument. Expertly balanced between soloist and orchestra, the Hungarian flavour hints at what a late Bartok cello concerto might have sounded like . (Sinfonia concertante) written originally alongside the score of Ben-Hur for Heifetz and Piatigorsky. Raphael Wallfisch clearly has an affinity with these splendid works and the BBC Concert Orchestra are on great form … Graffin partners Wallfisch adroitly … warmly recommended.” (Gramophone)
