Since winning BBC Young Musician of the year in 2012 Laura van der Heijden has developed an international career in recital, chamber music and concerto. Bach’s cello suites are among his best loved and provide the perfect framework for two 20th century works. Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson is now considered to be among the finest Black American composers of the 20th century and Imogen Holst was a major figure in British musical life.
‘The beauty of Laura van der Heijden’s playing lies in the fact that she has a wonderful expressivity, but never, ever overdoes it’ – Bachtrack
