Charlie Siem was born in London to a Norwegian father and a British mother and began to play the violin at the age of three. He read music at Girton College, Cambridge, furthering his violin studies with tutors from The Guildhall School of Music and The Royal College of Music under Itzhak Rashkovsky and Shlomo Mintz. His 2008 début CD featured violin sonatas by Grieg and Elgar. Throughout 2009 his reputation as one of the brightest new classical artists grew with prestigious concerts in Paris, London, Oslo, Bergen and Basel. He has since enjoyed a very successful career, appearing with major orchestras and at festivals around the world. In 2010 he signed to Warner Classics and Jazz, releasing a critically acclaimed album, including repertoire by Paganini, Sarasate, Wieniawski and Kreisler. Also released on Warner Classics, recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra, is Bruch’s Violin Concerto No 1, coupled with Ole Bull’s Cantabile doloroso e Rondo giocoso. Charlie Siem plays a 1735 Guarneri del Gesù d’Egville violin, once treasured by Menuhin and now owned by the Elderberry Foundation, which is on loan to him.
