Tonight, Charlotte Hawkins’s Young Classical Star is the 21-year-old cellist Camille Berthollet. The Franco-Swiss musician began learning the instrument at the age of four and entered the Geneva Conservatorium ‘Musimax’ program when she was ten. With a number of International awards to her name, and multiple album releases on Warner Classics, Camille often collaborates with her older sister Julie, on the violin.

Last Sunday, we heard from the cellist and violinist Camille Berthollet, and tonight it's the turn of her sister, 23-year-old violinist and violist Julie Berthollet who’s Charlotte’s Young Classical Star.
The pair have made their mark in classical music with their collaboration albums, including Vivaldi's Four Seasons on Warner Classics, they have won a number of international competitions, and became the youngest duo ever selected for the finals of the Tournoi International de Musique Competition.
