Camille Thomas, cello

Thursday, October 24, 2019 / 7:30 pm EDT

$15 – $20

“Camille Thomas…has all the requisite technique and produces a sound I can only liken to drinking hot chocolate: delicious, warming, full of flavour.” — Gramophone Magazine

From nature’s unpredictable whims to impeccable human craftsmanship, the creation of a fine wine and a timeless cello have much in common. When the alchemy is just right, the results are warm, vibrant, life-affirming. Such are the commanding sounds of Paris-born Camille Thomas, a rising-star cellist delivering dynamic virtuosity on her 18th-century Gagliano cello, nicknamed the Château Pape-Clément after Bordeaux’s oldest wine estate. Thomas earned a first-prize finish at 2014’s European Broadcasting Union Competition and a spot on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list. Here, she’ll let breathe her blend of verve, intimacy and tenderness on a Brahms sonata with otherworldly overtones, Beethoven’s variations on music from The Magic Flute, a movement from Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time, and a soulful, radiant Franck cello sonata.
