J S BACH Gamba Sonata No 1 in G major BWV1027
MARK-ANTHONY TURNAGE Power Play
BOWEN Viola Sonata No 2 in F major
Lawrence Power viola
Simon Crawford-Philips piano
One of the world’s most charismatic viola soloists, Lawrence Power has been praised for his 'technical brilliance and emotional depth' and described as 'an artist of exceptional expressive power'.
Here he takes charge of the latest of our curated 'and Friends' series, inviting a distinguished group of kindred spirits to join him in a celebration of the viola as chamber-music star, revealing it in many settings and contexts, guises and characters. The Guardian has said of Power that 'his tone is breathtakingly beautiful, rich and poetic, but such is his insight that the music, rather than his technique, is what commands attention.' Plenty to look forward to.
