OUT NOW | Cellist Natalie Clein’s New CD: ‘Clarke Viola Sonata & Bridge Cello Sonata’ [LISTEN]

Hyperion Records has announced the release of British cellist Natalie Clein's new album: 'Clarke Viola Sonata & Bridge Cello Sonata'


Hyperion Records has announced the release of leading British cellist Natalie Clein’s new album: Clarke Viola Sonata & Bridge Cello Sonata.

Recorded with pianist Christian Ihle Hadland, the disc features a new cello transcription of Rebecca Clarke’s Viola Sonata – with Frank Bridge’s Cello Sonata and Vaughan Williams’ Six Studies in English Folk Song.

“When programming this disc I was drawn to the evocative and longing nostalgia of these three works … cellists always like a bit of nostalgia …” Natalie has told The Violin Channel.

“I hope with this disc is that listeners will be fascinated to hear the Clarke Sonata … either for the first time or at least for the first time on the cello … and that they will be moved by the richness of all of these incredible pieces – in the context of the time they were written,” she has said.
