Natalie Clein is like an old friend at Rhosygilwen. She has supported many of our endeavours over the last 10 years. She is an exclusive recording artist for Hyperion and has recorded the two Cello Concertos by Camille Saint-Saens as well as Bloch’s Schelomo and Bruch’s Kol Nidrei with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra to great critical acclaim. A solo disc with works by Bloch, Ligeti and Dallapiccola has been released She has previously released 3 discs for EMI.
This year Natalie Clein tours the UK with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and Libor Pesek, and appears with the Orchestre National d’lle de France and the Recreation Orchestra Graz with Michael Hofstetter.
“Clein resists showiness but plays with a
passion and maturity beyond her years.”
“Her rhythmic subtlety and shading of tone proclaim the emergence of a truly compelling artist.”
