Winner of the BBC Young Musician Competition in 2012, the young cellist Laura van de Heijden has already made a name for herself as a quite exceptional emerging talent. Since winning the BBC prize, she was awarded the Landgraf von Hessen prize at the Kronberg Academy’s prestigious international master classes.
Recent performances have included her debut with the Philharmonia in Beethoven’s Triple concerto and with Sinfonia Cymru in Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto along with appearences with the London Mozart players and the European Youth Chamber Orchestra. Alison Rhind is a rising star amongst young accompanists and has worked with international artists such as Nicola Benedetti and Alina Ibragimova.
