Natalie Clein is one of the world's most exceptional cellists. She first attracted the attention of the international music scene at the age of sixteen, when she was awarded the BBC's Young Musician of the Year and in the same year was the first ever British winner of the Eurovision Competition for Young Musicians. She has since won a number of prestigious prizes, including the Classical Brit Award for Young British Performer in 2005, the Ingrid zu Solms Cultur Preis at the 2003 Kronberg Academie, and in 2008 was nominated in the Classical Brits Best Female Artist category. Natalie has released three discs on EMI Classics and in June will release an all-Kodaly CD with Julius Drake on Hyperion, which has already won critical acclaim. Natalie is passionate about combining traditional repertoire with more experimental pieces and reaching out to new audiences. She is also a committed mentor of emerging talent and has worked with young musicians around the world. www.natalieclein.com
