Laura Rafecas, violinist

Born in Vilafranca del Penedès (Barcelona)  in 1989, Laura’s performing career starts at the age of 13, all around Catalonia.

After graduating in her first Bachelor at ” Conservatori Superior de Música del Liceu” (Barcelona) at the age of 18 (2007), Laura moves to The Netherlands. She graduates in her second Bachelor studies at “Codarts, Hogeschool voor de Kunsten” (2009) and afterwards, at the age of 22, she finishes her “Master in Performance” (June 2011), Cum Laude.

Her main project is the Duo with the pianist Roderigo Robles, with whom they have already played in many places around The Netherlands and been included in concertseries like “Concerten op de Deel” (Stichting de Verrassing), the concerts at the Hillagondakerk in Rotterdam (Stichting Hillegersberg) and Lunchconcert series at De Oosterpoort, Theater De Tobbe, Oude Kerk (Zoetermeer), Dorpskerk (Spijkenisse)…

The duo has performed also in Spain, where their project Essences of Catalonia has also been very well received by the audience: first, as part of the chamber music concertserie promoted by the wine industry and the government from Alt Penedès (Tasts de Cambra); and also being one of the concerts of the sixth edition of “Noches poético-musicales”, organized by “Fundación Ithaca”, in Altea.
