Laura van der Heijden performs Walton

 30 October 2012 at 7.30pm 

Laura van der Heijden performs Walton

Cadogan Hall
5 Sloane Terrace, London, SW1X 9DQ
United Kingdom

Conductor - Paul Daniel
Cello - Laura van der Heijden

Winner of BBC Young Musician 2012, dazzling cellist Laura van der Heijden performs Walton’s Cello Concerto – the piece with which she won the title, aged only 15. With its singing, complex cello part and rich orchestral writing, Walton’s Concerto is the perfect vehicle for Laura van der Heijden’s unique gifts. Framing Walton’s powerful music are gems by his fellow Englishmen: a witty overture from Vaughan Williams, the hauntingly beautiful A Song of the Night by Holst, featuring acclaimed violinist Clio Gould, and Elgar’s incomparable ‘Enigma’ Variations.
