Camille Thomas, cello & Julien Brocal, piano

Franco-Belgian cellist Camille Thomas blends a brilliant command of her instrument with a rare musicality. The first cellist to be signed by the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label in over 40 years, Thomas’ standout talent was recognized at the European Broadcasting Union Competition in 2014, where she was awarded first prize and named New Talent of the Year. Thomas has already worked with conductors such as Paavo Järvi, Mikko Franck, Marc Soustrot, Darrell Ang, Kent Nagano and Stéphane Denève, as well as with orchestras including the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Academia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Sinfonia Varsovia, Staatsorchester Hamburg in the Elbphilharmonie, the Lucerne Festival Strings in the Herkulessaal in Munich, the Opera National de Bordeaux and Brussels Philharmonic. In her SMF debut, she is accompanied by French pianist Julien Brocal, whose recent solo album was given five stars by BBC Music Magazine, calling it “spellbinding Chopin.”
