This month cellist Laura van der Heijden travels to Tokyo for the first time to perform Dvorak’s cello concerto with the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra on 21 August. The concert is part of the orchestra’s summer festival at Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre. Furthermore Laura will also give two recitals in Musashino City Community Hall on 24 August.

These performances draw to a close a fantastic season for Laura, who released her debut CD earlier in the year to great critical acclaim. She also made her debuts with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and the Argovia Philharmonic, as well as giving her recital debut at Wigmore Hall and performing at the BBC Proms.
