BBC Young Musician of the Year Laura van der Heijden (cello) and Tom Poster (piano) (Maidment Auditorium)

Thursday 22 January 2015 at 19:30

At the age of 15, cellist Laura van der Heijden was awarded the title of BBC Young Musician 2012, performing Walton’s Cello Concerto with Kirill Karabits and the Northern Sinfonia at The Sage, Gateshead.

Tonight, she will be joined by Tom Poster on piano to perform what promises to be a wonderful evening of fine musicianship performed by these two amazingly talented musicians.

Tom Poster burst onto the scene at the age of 13, making his London Concerto Debut. Tom is internationally recognised as a pianist of outstanding artistry and versatility, equally in demand as soloist and chamber musician across an unusually extensive repertoire.
