Lawrence Power (viola)

Lawrence Power is one of today’s foremost violists, in demand worldwide as a recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber music partner. His eloquent artistry and penetrating musicianship were acknowledged in 2015 when he was shortlisted for the Royal Philharmonic Society Instrumentalist Award.

Over the past decade, he has become a regular guest performer with orchestras of the highest international calibre, from the Chicago Symphony, Boston Symphony, Royal Concertgebouw, Bayerischer Rundfunk, Stockholm Philharmonic and Bergen Philharmonic orchestras to the Philharmonia, the BBC Scottish Symphony and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestras.

Lawrence Power was Artist in Residence with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra during the 2012–13 Season and has also forged a close relationship with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. His recital credits include performances at Wigmore Hall and other prestigious UK and European venues and festivals. He regularly collaborates with the violinist Maxim Vengerov and has established a duo partnership with pianist Simon Crawford-Phillips.

Power’s Gramophone Award-nominated recordings for Hyperion include the viola concertos of Bartók, Rósza, Walton and Rubbra, the Shostakovich and Brahms viola sonatas, and York Bowen’s complete works for viola and piano with Simon Crawford-Phillips. His three-disc Hindemith survey stands as a benchmark recording of the composer’s complete works for solo viola, while Fin de siècle, again made with Simon Crawford-Phillips, included premiere recordings of works by Büsser, Hüe and Honnoré, together with compositions by Chausson, Debussy, Enescu and Ravel.

Lawrence Power became Artistic Director of the English Chamber Orchestra Charitable Trust in May 2016 and launched his first London series with the English Chamber Orchestra at Kings Place in October 2016. He is also founder and Artistic Director of West Wycombe Chamber Music Festival.
