“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 

Winner of 2014 new artist awards from the French Ministry of Culture and the European Broadcast Union Competition, Franco-Belgian cellist Camille Thomas is conquering the world stage at a staggering pace. The first cellist signed by Deutsche Grammophon in over 40 years, she blends a brilliant command of her instrument with a rare musicality to offer truly memorable concerto and recital appearances.

She is joined in this, her Texas debut, with eloquent young pianist and winner of the 2008 Rubinstein Competition, Roman Rabinovich. Though this is also his first performance in our series, audience members will remember Adam Golka’s performance of one of Roman’s compositions last season at the Kimbell.
