    Andreas Haefliger
    Old Swan Hotel Harrogate HG1 2SR
    United Kingdom

    Coming from a rich tradition, pianist Andreas Haefliger “belongs to that elite group of interpreters…one of the most serious, questing pianists on the circuit today…a complete Beethovenian.” Born into a distinguished Swiss musical family in 1962, Haefliger studied at Juilliard and has since enjoyed performing regularly both in recital and with orchestras across the globes. Haefliger’s elegant programme celebrates Beethoven’s 250th birthday with a fantasia and sonata, followed by Mussorgsky’s 10-movement musical work that was inspired by a visit to an art exhibition. Although originally composed in 1874 for solo piano, Pictures at an Exhibition became better known in orchestral form, particularly as arranged by French composer Maurice Ravel in 1922.

    Raphael Wallfisch and London Mozart Players
    London Mozart Players, Raphael Wallfisch, Simon Blendis
    St John's Smith Square London SW1P 3HA
    United Kingdom

    Virtuoso cellist Raphael Wallfisch, one of the most celebrated cellists performing on the international stage today, joins the London Mozart Players for an evening of sublime genre-spanning music that showcases two masterpieces of the cello repertoire.

    Symphonies by the giants of the Classical era Haydn (‘Miracle’) and Mozart (‘Prague’) book-end great works for the cello by two titans of romanticism, Schumann and Tchaikovsky. Schumann’s cello concerto boasts plenty of passionate melodies that soar against an unobtrusive orchestral accompaniment, particularly in the second movement with its passionate double-stopped surge – a golden moment in any cellist’s repertory. The Rococo Variations are the closest Tchaikovsky came to writing a cello concerto. Inspired by Mozart, whom he revered above all, Tchaikovskydazzles with his virtuosic cello-writing which will take soloist Raphael Wallfisch on a beguiling journey through duets, cadenzas, cantabiles, waltzes, run and trills to an invigorating conclusion.

    With concert appearances around the world, Wallfisch is at the height of his powers with a masterful technique and a soaring, singing sound that evokes a tradition continued from his teacher, Piatigorsky.

    United Kingdom

    A graduate of Cambridge University and the Royal College of Music, Anna Cavaliero also studied with Barbara Bonney at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and has recently returned from a year in the studio of the Opéra National de Lyon. She brings a programme with Britten's On this Island - settings of W.H. Auden - at its heart, alongside music by Bartók, Walton, Poulenc and Korngold. Much of the programme is inspired by folk song or cabaret, and a sense of nostalgia and separation sits alongside an atmosphere of humour and irony.
