Lawrence Power

About Lawrence Power

Violist Lawrence Power has been one of the few players of his instrument to achieve international renown since the days of William Primrose. Power turned down a position as first violist in the Berlin Philharmonic in favor of a solo career, which has grown to encompass appearances as a soloist with many top-level orchestras. Power has had an unusually vigorous recording career, both solo and with the Nash Ensemble and the Leopold String Trio. His solo career began with a recording of music by Ligeti, Takemitsu, and Prokofiev. In 2005, Power issued the recorded premiere of a concerto by York Bowen. He appeared on 2020's Voices of Angels, and in 2023, he joined the Kungsbacka Piano Trio for a recording of Schumann's early Piano Quartet in C minor.
