Britten Variations on a theme by Frank Bridge, Op. 10

Orchestra of the Swan
David Curtis conductor
Raphael Wallfisch cello

Raphael Wallfisch returns to Cello Unwrapped, this time with the Orchestra of the Swan for a special concert of British music, taking us from Elgar’s elegant Introduction and Allegro to the young Britten’s freshly inventive Variations on a theme by Frank Bridge. In between we encounter two rarities, Edmund Rubbra’s haunting Soliloquy and Ireland’s sonata, a darkly turbulent work illuminated anew in an arrangement for soloist and strings. Wallfisch will bring all the burnished intensity of his sound to Imogen Holst’s poignant response to a 17th century tune, The Fall of the Leaf.

‘Any more compellingly idiomatic or richly seasoned cello playing than this would be hard to contemplate.’ International Record Review
