The first cellist signed by Deutsche Grammophon in over forty years, Camille Thomas blends a brilliant command of her instrument with a rare musicality to offer truly memorable concerto and recital appearances. Her first DG recording Saint-Saens, Offenbach vividly illustrates the reasons for DG's historic signing, as well as delighting her growing number of enthusiastic fans the world over. Camille's special talent was recognized at the European Broadcasting Union Competition, where she was awarded the 1st prize and named “New Talent of the Year 2014”.
Born in 1987 in Arles, France, Julien Brocal began learning the piano at the age of five. He was taught by Erik Berchot and Rena Shereshevskaya at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris Alfred Cortot and in 2013 began working with Maria João Pires at the Cité de la Musique in Paris. She subsequently invited him to continue his studies at the Queen Elisabeth Musical Chapel in Belgium and to be one of the founding members of the Partitura Project.
