  3. Scheherazade Op 35 - Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov

Guy Johnston is no longer able to play. We are delighted to welcome Laura van der Heijden.

Laura has already made a name for herself as a very special emerging talent, captivating audiences and critics alike with her 'compelling, intelligent, natural, imaginative, sensitive, heartfelt' interpretations. Having turned 21 in 2018, Laura can already look back on a number of exceptional achievements, among them becoming the winner - at the age of just 15 – of the BBC Young Musician 2012 competition, and performing with such distinguished musicians as Sir Andrew Davis, Fazil Say, Kirill Karabits, Huw Watkins, Krzysztof Chorzelski, and the Endellion String Quartet. In 2016 Laura was chosen by the Orpheum Stiftung in Switzerland, a foundation encouraging and assisting exceptionally talented young instrumental soloists. Under this umbrella she appeared in recital with Fazil Say at Zürich Tonhalle.

The irresistible Slavonic colours of Dvorák's concerto are mirrored by the exotic scene-painting of two other composers in tales of myth and magic. Glinka’s glittering overture to ‘Ruslan and Lyudmila’ is dominated by nationalistic themes whilst Rimsky’ Korsakov’s Scheherazade is an apotheosis of Russian orientalism, elegantly combining its seductive story-telling with the vivid instrumentation and stirring tunefulness that make it such a concert favourite.

Brandon Hill Chamber Orchestra are delighted to be performing again under the baton of Berlin-based conductor, Catherine Larsen-Maguire.
