Natalie Clein (cello)

Natalie Clein has been described by The Times as a ‘mesmerising’ cellist who ‘plays everything with passion’. Born in the United Kingdom she came to widespread attention at the age of sixteen when she won both the BBC Young Musician of the Year and the Eurovision Competition for Young Musicians. As a student she was awarded the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Scholarship by the Royal College of Music before completing her studies with Heinrich Schiff in Vienna.

Natalie has performed with orchestras including the Philharmonia, Hallé, Royal Philharmonic, Vienna Chamber, Bournemouth Symphony, Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields, City of Birmingham Symphony, Montreal Symphony, Orchestre de Lyon, New Zealand Symphony and Orquesta Filarmónica de Buenos Aires, with conductors including Sir Charles Mackerras, Sir Mark Elder, Gennardi Rozhdestvensky, Heinrich Schiff, Sir Neville Marriner and Mark Wigglesworth.

In recital Natalie has appeared at venues including Wigmore Hall, Concertgebouw, Lincoln Center, at the BBC Proms, Aldeburgh Proms, Manchester International Festival, and in Salzburg, Vienna, Tokyo, Sydney and Seoul. A dedicated chamber musician, she has collaborated with artists including Martha Argerich, Ian Bostridge, Simon Keenlyside, Melvyn Tan, Imogen Cooper, Lars Vogt, Isabelle Faust, Anthony Marwood and Pekka Kuusisto. Natalie’s continuing commitment to the cello repertoire has included commissions and premieres of works by Thomas Larcher, Sir Peter Maxwell Davis, Sir John Tavener, Dobrinka Tabakova and Fyfe Dangerfield, as well as collaborations with the dancer Carlos Acosta and the writer Jeanette Winterson.

Natalie’s prizes and awards have included the 2005 Classical BRIT for Young British Performer and the Kronberg Academy Ingrid Zu Solms prize. She plays the ‘Simpson’ Guadagnini cello of 1777.
