Natalie Clein Cello & Julius Drake Piano

LISZT Elegie No.1 SCHUBERT Arpeggione Sonata in A minor KODALY Solo Sonata, Op.8 LISZT Elegie No.2 BEETHOVEN Sonata No.3 in A major, Op.69 Natalie Clein makes a welcome return to Lakeside with duo partner Julius Drake. Their all-Kodaly CD on the Hyperion label has received rave reviews, including ‘Editor’s Choice’ in Gramophone. The programme for Lakeside provides the opportunity to hear Clein perform Kodaly’s Solo Sonata about which critics have heaped superlatives, as well as other masterworks of the cello repertoire. Natalie Clein’s exceptional musicality has earned her a number of prestigious prizes including the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition in 1994 at the age of 16 and the Classical Brit Award for Young British Performer of 2005. “Zoltan Kodály’s Sonata for solo cello represents one of those daunting summits that cellists feel ineluctably drawn to conquer, and Natalie Clein does so here with terrific passion, piquancy and technical accomplishment.” The Telegraph The concert finishes at approximately 9.30pm 6.45 Pre-concert talk by Philip Weller
