PT Debut of cellist Natalie Clein
Our festival of cello concertos continues with the PT debut of 32 year-old English cellist Natalie Clein. Clein was the BBC's "Young Musician of the Year" as a 16 year old, and had lucrative contract offers from managers and record companies. She could have cashed in as the next young classical darling, but chose to pursue 10 years of rigorous schooling in London and Vienna. She's now re-emerging as a soloist. We'll hear Natalie Clein in concert in Dublin, playing Edward Elgar's Cello Concerto with the RTE National Symphony Orchestra.
