  Like the cello? Then this is for you! July 21, 2015 By Richard F. Buckley (Jefferson Hills, PA) See All My Reviews "I've always been particularly partial to the cello. Mstislav Rostropovich introduced me to the instrument many years ago. He and Jacquelline Du-Pre have always been my favorites with Yo Yo Ma being a close third. After listening intently to this recording for a few times, I may have to introduce Raphael Wallfisch into the running. His work on both of these pieces is nothing short of amazing! Of course,it goes without saying that both of these works, written by two geniuses, Dvorak and Dohnanyi, bring out the best in any ultra-talented cellist. Still, I am deeply impressed by Wallfisch's command of the instrument. Sir Charles Mackerras is best recognized for his work on pieces by Handel and Mozart, but his direction of the wonderful London Symphony Orchestra on these offerings is flawless. This CD, issued in 1988, is not easily found, but if you enjoy the cello and wish to be treated to the work of Wallisch, Mackerras and the London Symphony Orchestra, it will be well worht the time hunting for it You won't be disappointed."
