Regular visitors since the 1990s, Raphael Wallfisch and John York were celebrating 35 years as a duo on their last visit to the Festival in 2017 and Raphael returned in the Autumn to play the Bach cello suites in a fund-raising concert in Warwick. This concert begins with an arrangement of Schubert’s music by the great American cellist, Igor Piatigorsky, with whom Raphael studied, and adds some exhilarating Prokofiev to the Delius Sonata and Schubert’s ‘Arpeggione’.
