The innovative debut disc from the 2012 BBC Young Musician winner


‘Van der Heijden plays with attractively songful tone throughout, rich yet grainy in her instrument’s bass register. She is well-matched by Limonov’s sensitive piano playing, their phrasing very much hand in glove and yet spontaneous-sounding.’

B minor, Op. 11 No. 1
