Official description

Sir Edward Elgar’s E Minor Cello Concerto Op 85, perhaps the most iconic of them all, will be played by virtuoso Raphael Wallfisch and the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra at the Thailand Cultural Centre, Ratchadaphisek Road, next Tuesday at 8pm.

The concert “Raphael Wallfisch Plays Elgar” will provide an opportunity to witness the artistic personality and technical brilliance of the British cellist who has maintained a solid reputation as one of the world’s finest players of the instrument.

Compatriot conductor Martin Yates is making a comeback to work with the BSO and the English theme will be completed by Elgar’s Pomp And Circumstance Military Marches Op 39, which will open the concert. The BSO will then perform Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No.9 In E Minor Op 95 (from the New World).

Raphael studied with legendary pedagogues Amaryllis Fleming in England and Gregor Piatigorsky in California. Subsequently launching his own solo career by winning the Gaspar Cassadó International Cello Competition in Florence aged 24, he has since worked regularly with top orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Philharmonia, Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and Czech Philharmonic.

Described by The Times as one of the most exciting and versatile British conductors of his generation, Yates studied piano, composition and conducting and he works in many diverse genres of the classical music profession.
