a viola & piano recital on Sunday 20 October 2019 at 7:30 pm
Hailed as “a player of poise, elegance and individuality”, Lawrence Power is one of today’s foremost violists, in demand worldwide as a recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber music partner. This evening, the world-leading viola player is paired with Simon Crawford-Phillips on piano, who has established an extraordinarily varied career as soloist, chamber musician and conductor. They will introduce some lesser-known pieces which many concert goers have not encountered very often.
Lawrence Power is one of today’s foremost violists, in demand worldwide as a recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber music partner. His artistry and penetrating musicianship gains him constant plaudits around the world, reflected in turn in eloquent reviews: ‘no musician today better equipped to play than the minstrel-like Power’ (Financial Times), ‘Power is something more: a profound musical personality, his every phrase new and noteworthy’ (Sunday Times). Over the past decade, he has become a regular guest performer with orchestras of the highest calibre, from the Chicago Symphony, Boston Symphony, Royal Concertgebouw, Bayerischer Rundfunk, Stockholm, Bergen and Warsaw Philharmonic orchestras to the Philharmonia, BBC Scottish Symphony and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestras.
Simon Crawford-Phillips has established an extraordinarily varied career as soloist, chamber musician and conductor. He has made recent conducting debuts with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Musica Vitae, Dala Sinfonietta, Nash Ensemble and English Chamber Orchestra and assisted Daniel Harding, Alain Altinoglu and Stanislav Kachanovsky at the Verbier Festival. In August 2016 he conducted the première of Britta Byström's Violin Concerto at the Baltic Sea Festival with Musica Vitae and Malin Broman and two weeks later was invited by Västerås Sinfonietta to open their season as conductor and soloist. As a result he was appointed chief conductor and artistic adviser of Våsterås Sinfonietta from 2017, a contract that has already been extended through 2023.
