Laura van der Heijden (cello) - ‘compelling, intelligent, natural, imaginative, sensitive, heartfelt’ interpretations

Laura van der Heijden has already made a name for herself as a very special emerging talent, captivating audiences and critics alike with her ‘compelling, intelligent, natural, imaginative, sensitive, heartfelt’ interpretations. Having turned 21 in 2018, Laura can already look back on a number of exceptional achievements, among them becoming the winner – at the age of just 15 – of the BBC Young Musician 2012 competition, and performing with such distinguished musicians as Sir Andrew Davis, Fazil Say, Kirill Karabits, Huw Watkins, Krzysztof Chorzelski, and the Endellion String Quartet.

In 2016 Laura was chosen by the Orpheum Stiftung in Switzerland, a foundation encouraging and assisting exceptionally talented young instrumental soloists. Under this umbrella she appeared in recital with Fazil Say at Zürich Tonhalle. In 2018 Laura performed with the Argovia Philharmonic in Switzerland and at Wigmore Hall in a BBC lunchtime recital; also performances with the Hallé Orchestra under Karl-Heinz Steffens (Dvorak), in Japan with the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra and at the Musashino Cultural Foundation, as well as in Italy at the Stradivari Festival of Cremona.
