Charlie Siem - fiolin

Charlie Siem
Charlie Siem is one of the brightest young stars in classical music. Born in London to a Norwegian father and British mother, Charlie began to play the violin at the age of three after hearing a broadcast of Yehudi Menuhin playing Beethoven´s Violin Concerto.

Charlie has appeared with orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Czech National Symphony Orchestra and the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra alongside conductors such as Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Yuri Simonov, Sir Roger Norrington, Ed Gardner, Libor Pes´k and Michal Nesterowicz.

Charlie´s recent touring activity includes performances in Holland with the North Netherlands Symphony Orchestra as well as critically acclaimed performances with the Moscow Philharmonic playing Shostakovich´s Violin Concerto No. 1. His festival appearances include Spoleto, St Moritz, Gstaad, Bergen, Tine Munch and Windsor.

Charlie is a great believer in giving back to worthwhile causes and is honoured to be an ambassador of the Prince's Trust and Visiting Professor at Leeds College of Music, making Charlie the youngest Professor in the UK. Charlie Siem plays the 1735 Guarneri del Gesù violin.
