Bach Cello Suites at St George’s, Bristol October 2015
"Natalie Clein played the first three of the solo cello suites and, as the opening prelude of the G major suite unfolded, the Bach spell was cast anew. Clein treated the music in heightened conversational fashion, articulating the component voices and their different inflections, creating a sense of continuing narrative."
Rian Evans, The Guardian

Music at Paxton with Håvard Gimse
Paxton House, July 2015
"Debussy’s Sonata in its centenary year was spilling over with expression from Clein [...] Her robust, full-on sound brought warm immediacy and deep colour to Debussy’s lyrical lines [...] Clein’s playing was heart-wrenching in Rachmaninov’s G minor Sonata, sensual in the sumptuousness of its lush romance."
Carol Main, The Scotsman ****
