Bridgewater Hall, 20 November 2004 Dvorak: Cello Concerto Manchester Camerata/Douglas Boyd
“Her phrasing and the sustained long and high pianissimi were ravishing in their poetic beauty.”
Michael Kennedy, The Telegraph November 2004


Mostly Mozart Festival, Barbican Centre, 15 July 2004 Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields/Nicholas McGegan
“She played the extended melody of the slow movement with exquisite lyricism, coloured by some beautiful pianissimo moments. In the last movement she showed impressive agility in high positions, and she played throughout with a warm and clear tone."
Tim Homfray, The Strad, October 2004


Cheltenham Festival Elgar Cello Concerto CBSO/Martyn Brabbins
“The mesmerising cellist Natalie Clein performed superbly, with a bewitching mix of cool dignity, surging lyricism and soul-surrendering abandon. This was the highlight of the evening.” 
Matthew Connolly, The Times, 15 July 2004

“The soloist, Natalie Clein, brought passion and freshness to Elgar’s Cello Concerto.”
Paul Driver, The Sunday Times, 18 July, 2004


De Montfort Hall, 20 June 2004 Dvorak Cello Concerto Philharmonia Orchestra/Sir Charles Mackerras
“Natalie Clein gave a remarkable performance of Dvorak’s Cello Concerto – assured and heartfelt, with a sense of poetry, and expressive phrasing.”
Leicester Mercury, 22 June 2004


Ipswich Corn Exchange, May 2004 Dvorak Cello Concerto City of London Sinfonia/Douglas Boyd
“The lovely tone and control brought out the yearning and the Bohemian origins that are clearly reflected in the music. Natalie Clein is very talented.”
Judith Newman, East Anglian Daily Times, 07 June 2004


“She demonstrated her huge talent with an emotionally charged performance of Dvorak’s Cello Concerto in B minor. It was difficult not to be transfixed by the intemsity.” 
Alison Croose, Eastern Daily Press, 22 May 2004
