Lawrence Power (viola)

see also Lawrence Power (violin)

Lawrence Power is one of the foremost violists today and in 2011 was shortlisted for the Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist Award. He is regularly invited to perform with some of the world’s greatest orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, the Boston Symphony, the Royal Concertgebouw, Bayerischer Rundfunk, Stockholm Philharmonic, Warsaw Philharmonic and the Bergen Philharmonic.

Lawrence has performed Berlioz’s Harold in Italy with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Mark Elder; Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante with the Philharmonia at the Royal Festival Hall, Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood Music Festival, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic; York Bowen’s Viola Concerto with the Philharmonisches Staatsorchester in Mainz; Takemitsu’s Concerto, A String Around Autumn, with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife, and Rózsa’s Concerto with the BBC Scottish Symphony and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestras. He has performed Penderecki’s Viola Concerto in a series of concerts with Camerata Salzburg conducted by the composer, and has also made critically acclaimed orchestral debuts in Australia.

Lawrence has made many recordings for Hyperion, including concertos by Bartók, Rózsa, Britten, McEwen, Walton and Rubbra, sonatas by Shostakovich and Brahms, and York Bowen’s complete works for viola and piano with Simon Crawford-Phillips. His three-disc Hindemith survey has become a benchmark recording of this repertoire. He has been Artist in Residence with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, and also enjoys a close relationship with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, with whom he has performed Walton’s Concerto with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Britten’s Lachrymae with Vladimir Jurowski.

Lawrence Power has been appointed International Professor of Viola at the Zurich Hochschule der Kunst, and is the founder and Artistic Director of the West Wycombe Chamber Music Festival.
