About this Recording

Cello Music - BUSCH, W. / LEIGHTON, K. / WORDSWORTH, W. / COOKE, A. (British Music for Cello and Piano) (Wallfisch, Terroni)

British music for the cello flourished in the first decades of the twentieth century and created a fertile seed bed for the gifted generations of composers to come. The four composers heard on this recording never achieved widespread fame, owing to early death or a reluctance to promote their music, but their contribution to the repertoire is substantial and very personal. Two of the works—by Busch and Leighton—were composed for the well-known cellist Florence Hooton. The programme is played by one of the most admired duos of recent times, Raphael Wallfisch and Raphael Terroni.
