Charlie Siem and the Omega Ensemble
For the first time ever, internationally renowned violin virtuoso Charlie Siem will perform in Australia with the Sydney-based Omega Ensemble, showcasing a classical music recital in uniquely Australian settings.
Siem is one of the world’s most promising young musicians. Born in London, he studied the violin at the Royal College of Music with Itzhak Rashkovsky, and later with Shlomo Mintz, whilst attending Eton College and Cambridge University. At only 30 years of age, he became the youngest Professor of Music in the UK (Leeds College of Music). He plays the 1735 Guarneri del Gesù violin.
The classically-trained musician also works with many of the world’s finest orchestras (The Royal, the Moscow and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestras; the Czech and the Oslo National Symphony Orchestras) and conductors (including Charles Dutoit, Edward Gardner, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Sir Roger Norrington, Libor Pesěk and Yuri Simonov) and performed for the Queen of Denmark.
Often credited with bridging the worlds of classical music, pop culture and style, Siem has performed onstage with stars like The Who, Bryan Adams and Jamie Cullen, while winning a unique fan base including Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Karl Lagerfeld.
