Raphael Weinroth-Browne

Cellist and composer Raphael Weinroth-Browne is rapidly making a name for himself as an exceptionally versatile musician both in Canada and internationally. With his groundbreaking duo, The Visit, Raphael has played major festivals such as Wave Gotik Treffen (Germany), 21C (Canada), and the Cello Biennale Amsterdam (Netherlands). As one half of East-meets-West ensemble Kamancello, he arranged the music for “Convergence Suite,” a double concerto which    the duo performed with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra to a sold out audience. Raphael’s cello playing is featured prominently on ‘Malina,’ the latest release from Norwegian progressive rock/metal band Leprous. He has since joined the band on tour for over 100 shows all across Europe and the United States. Raphael has played on over 90 studio albums as well as numerous film and TV soundtracks. His work as a collaborator and session musician is extensive, ranging from performances with Pauline Oliveros and Ernst Reijseger to studio recordings with Lawrence Gowan (Styx) and Leprous. Raphael has also developed a considerable following on YouTube. His inventive cello ensemble and amplified cello arrangements of metal and progressive rock songs have been praised and reposted online by the likes of Opeth, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), and Chris Adler (Lamb of God, Megadeth).
