Manchester Chamber Concerts Society

In partnership with The Manchester Chamber Concerts Society

Join us for an evening which interweaves the cello, played by Natalie Clein, with the rich soprano of Ruby Hughes alongside distinguished pianist Julius Drake.

British-born cellist Natalie Clein came to widespread attention at the age of sixteen when she won both the BBC Young Musician of the Year and the Eurovision Competition for Young Musicians in Warsaw. Natalie’s playing has been described by The Times as ‘mesmerising’ and ‘soaringly passionate’. Natalie has built a distinguished career, regularly performing at major venues and with orchestras worldwide. A keen recital and chamber performer, she has recently performed Bach’s Complete Cello Suites in London, Southampton and Oxford and has curated a series of four concerts for BBC Radio 3 at LSO St Luke’s.

Described by The New Yorker as the ‘collaborative pianist nonpareil’, Julius Drake lives in London and enjoys an international reputation as one of the finest instrumentalists in his field, collaborating with many of the world’s leading artists, both in recital and on disc. His passionate interest in song has led to invitations to devise song series for Wigmore Hall, the BBC and his annual series of song recitals – Julius Drake and Friends.

Ruby Hughes began her musical studies as a cellist graduating from the Guildhall School of Music in London. In the UK she has performed major roles with English National Opera, Garsington Opera, The Opera Group, Music Theatre Wales and Scottish Opera. She also appeared in Sir Jonathan Miller’s acclaimed production of the St Matthew Passion at the National Theatre. She has broadcast & recorded extensively covering a wide range of repertoire including works by Bach, Barber, Berg, Britten, Crumb, Handel, Haydn, Mahler, Maxwell Davies, Macmillan, Mozart, Schubert & Schumann. Ruby is a passionate recitalist & works closely with the pianists Julius Drake & Joseph Middleton. In 2016 she released her first solo recital disc ‘Nocturnal variations’, songs by Schubert, Mahler, Britten and Berg with pianist Joseph Middleton for the Champs Hill label, named BBC Music Magazine’s choice of the month.

This promises to be an intriguing exploration of these sonorities, from Tavener’s starkly expressive Akhmatova Songs to Schubert’s exhilarating Auf dem Strom and Janáček’s enchanting Pohádka.
