Natalie Clein & Katya Apekisheva

Performance Dates & Times

Renowned British cellist Natalie Clein plays with a unique combination of passion and delicacy. It’s as though the cello becomes her voice, and she is simply telling us a story through music and emotion.

Boasting the well-travelled resume of a world-class musician, she has forged a distinguished career, regularly performing at major venues and with orchestras worldwide. Known for her dynamic and impassioned performances, she is one of the most original artists of her generation. 

For her first full Australian tour she has chosen to work with pianist Katya Apekisheva, a talented chamber musician of great sensitivity.

“Natalie Clein finds a golden timbre and fleet elegance ... This is as close as you'll get to musical champagne.” -BBC Music Magazine
