Few musicians inspire as much affection as Elizabeth and Raphael Wallfisch. Individually, they are revered for their 
gifts as players and teachers, and together they're the heads of a formidable musical dynasty. As a chamber music duo, they have, as you'd expect, excellent rapport.

Australian-born Elizabeth is one of the world's finest 
early violinists, a true pioneer of the instrument with an  extensive body of recordings. As a teacher, she has shaped  the talents of generations of young musicians.
British cellist 
Raphael is acclaimed for his soul-searching performances  and impeccable technique. Joined by
Australian pianist 
Benjamin Martin, Elizabeth and Raphael Wallfisch showcase  some of their favourite works from
the early-Baroque of 
Biber, the neo-Baroque of Stravinsky, ending with Brahms'  sublimely tuneful trio. It's the
perfect demonstration of what 
a harmonious partnership sounds like.

SCHUBERT Notturno
BIBER Passacaglia for violin solo
STRAVINSKY/PIATIAGORSKY
Suite Italienne for cello and piano
BENJAMIN WALL FISCH New work
for violin and cello

Artist Information

From Yarmila (Utzon Music Series Curator)

There aren't many musicians who can say that they will truly leave a legacy. This is definitely not the case for Libby and Raphael Wallfisch whose recordings, touring, performances and most of all their teaching will ensure that their passion and knowledge are passed down from generation to generation. Thousands of the best music students around the world, including those in AYO, have been the recipients of their generosity. These partners in love and life come together in the Utzon Room with our good friend Ben Martin for a special Sunday afternoon trio.
