The French-Swiss multi-instrumentalist Camille Berthollet is rapidly taking the classical music world by storm, having already released three albums by the age of just 19. She often performs with her sister, Julie, and has also duetted with the cellist Gautier Capuçon, who has said: “You can sense in her such a passion, she is really inside the music… She is so young but she already has this internal spark and this energy.” Charlotte will feature a track from Camille’s recently released album on Warner Classics.
This week, Charlotte shines the spotlight on Austrian pianist Aaron Pilsan, who started playing the piano at the age of just 5 years old. Having been a prodigy of the internationally acclaimed musician, Lars Vogt, the 23-year-old has sinced released two albums, including his latest, Home – an homage to Austria – on the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label.
