01Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert20161129

Fiona Talkington presents a new series from LSO St Luke's in London featuring Lawrence Power and Friends. Today Lawrence Power plays both viola and violin (though not at the same time) in two very different trios by Brahms.

Brahms: Trio in A minor for viola, cello and piano, Op 114

Lawrence Power (viola),

Paul Watkins (cello),

Simon Crawford-Phillips (piano).

Brahms: Piano Trio No 1 in B major, Op 8

Lawrence Power (violin),

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 Radio 3's curated "... and Friends" series at LSO St Luke's in London, 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.".
