MusicPlus: Raphael Wallfisch
“My main concern is that people understand where antisemitism comes from and why. Sadly, there’s a great underbelly of people who are not interested in being educated.”
Raphael Wallfisch is an internationally renowned cellist, and a man on a mission to bring to world attention to music of little-known Jewish composers, some of whose work was partly destroyed by the Nazis.
He speaks to Chris Gunness about the rise of antisemitism, the legacy of his mother who was a Holocaust survivor, and his Jewish composers project.
