Raphael Wallfisch

We are very excited and privileged to welcome Raphael to The Arts Barge - He has been extremely generous in donating proceeds of this performance to progressing the conversion of the barge to a fully accessible arts space.

Raphael Wallfisch is one of the most celebrated cellists performing on the international stage, and is one of the most recorded classical artists in the world.

A BBC survey named Wallfisch’s recording of the Dvorak Cello Concerto the best recording of the work in the past 25 years. 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.

Raphael’s programme for The Arts Barge is:

Bach suite no 1 in g

Hans Gal sonata op 109

Bach suite no2 in d minor

Weinberg sonata no 1 op72

Bach suite no 3 in c

Tickets £10 / £5 under 25 - available from the Great Yorkshire Fringe website.

Disabled Access  
Due to the ‘work in progress’ state of the Arts Barge at this year’s festival, we regret that wheelchair access down to the performance space is not possible.   

Through Riverside 2019 we aim to raise interest and funds to return in 2020 with full disabled access lift and toilet facilities. 

In the meantime, the gang-planks onto the barge are wide and wheelchair users are very welcome to enjoy the deck area. Our Riverside marquee (24th - 28th July) is free and accessible to all. Accessible toilet facilities in St. George’s Field car park, will be available during all Arts Barge Riverside Festival opening hours.
