Winner of the 2012 BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition, Laura van der Heijden is developing an impressive career in solo and chamber music even while she is still studying, reading music at the University of Cambridge. Her fascinating programme provides the opportunity to hear the full range of tones and colours from cello repertoire spanning 200 years, and this is a rare chance to hear the music of Nadia Boulanger, one of the most influential musicians of the 20th Century.
