As a fervent champion of contemporary music, Lawrence has developed a large repertoire of new works. He gave the premiere of Gerald Barry’s Viola Concerto, the UK premiere of Olga Neuwirth’s concerto Remnants of song at the 2012 BBC Proms, and the premieres of several works commissioned for him, including Salonen’s Pentatonic étude, Turnage’s Power play, Anderson’s Prayer, Goehr’s Hymn to night, MacMillan’s Viola Concerto and Watkins’ Fantasy. He recently formed The Viola Commissioning Circle: a scheme created to help commission new music from today’s leading composers. This has already led to new works by Thomas Adès and Gerald Barry, with many others in the coming seasons.His recital credits include performances at the Wigmore Hall, LSO St Luke’s and New York’s Lincoln Center. He has developed an acclaimed partnership with pianist Simon Crawford-Phillips, and collaborates with musicians such as Maxim Vengerov, Joshua Bell, Pavel Kolesnikov, Anne Sofie von Otter and Nicolas Altstaedt. A former Artist in Residence with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, he has also enjoyed residencies with the Aalborg Symphony Orchestra and Turner Sims, Southampton, where he acted as both a curator and a performer. He has also forged a close relationship with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
