The Czech city of Brno has a tremendous musical heritage and we’re delighted to welcome the Brno Philharmonic with a performance that includes Jealousy by Janáček, who was the founder of the Orchestra. 

Laura van der Heijden, one of the leading cellists of her generation, will perform Martinů’s Cello Concerto No. 1 and the concert concludes with Dvořak’s ever-popular ‘New World’ Symphony.

‘Laura van der Heijden… brought a virtuosic rhythmic vigour and achingly beautiful tenderness to the challenging solo part.’ Observer
