British cellist Natalie Clein, described by The Times as „mesmerising“ and „passionate“, has had a distinguished career, regularly appearing on major stages with conductors such as Sir Mark Elder, Sir Roger Norrington, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Leonard Slatkin and Heinrich Schiff.


She regularly records for Hyperion, including the two cello concertos by Camille Saint-Saëns and Bloch‘s Schelomo and Bruch‘s Kol Nidrei with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, as well as three CDs for EMI. Her recordings have won awards including Classical Brit, Gramophone and BBC Record of the Month and a Diapason d‘Or. Since 2018 she has been Professor of Cello at the Rostock Musikhochschule in Germany. She is also Professor of Cello at the Royal College of Music. In 2021 Natalie was awarded an OBE for her services to music. She plays the „Simpson“ cello by Guadagnini from 1777.
