Few British performers have caught the public’s imagination as much as cellist Natalie Clein. Her programme includes Rachmaninov’s great Sonata, one of his most passionate and poetic works.

BBC Music magazine’s Editor, Oliver Condy, explains why he has recommended tonight’s concert:
“A natural, charming musician, Natalie Clein is the foremost cellist of her generation. She came to prominence after winning the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition in 1994 with a spell-binding performance of Elgar’s Cello Concerto, a work she recorded with great acclaim for EMI Classics.” www.thsh.co.uk
