'Breathtaking musicality' Amsterdam Cello Biënnale.
Praised for having great passion and enormous narrative power, Lidy graduated from Paris conservatory with the highest distinction. She is a regular at festivals including the Janine Jansen Festival Utrecht, and the Grachtenfestival and Cello Biënnale, both in Amsterdam. She has given recitals in Belgium, France and Japan, and, in 2015, gave a Beethoven-recital with Maria João Pires in Madrid.
She has played with many orchestras as a soloist since being invited by the State Hermitage Orchestra in St Petersburg in 2013 to play the Dvorák cello concerto and the premiere of the Russian composer Sergej Yevtushenko. Her love of chamber music has seen her perform in New York, Italy and Switzerland, and last year she toured Jos Heutmekers’s new cello concerto with the Dutch Student Chamber Orchestra (the NESKO).
Lidy plays the Italian cello of Anner Bylsma, on loan from the Dutch National Musical Instrument Fund.
