On demand: MacMillan's Viola Concerto

GSOplayRecorded at Gothenburg Concert Hall: Stora Salen, Gothenburg, Sweden

Lawrence Power is a phenomenal artist and one of the world’s leading viola soloist. 

Sir James MacMillan’s resonant Viola Concerto was dedicated to him, and after the first performance with the London Philharmonic in 2014, the Guardian wrote: “A major contribution to the repertory… Lawrence Power looked as if he adored playing it.”

Watch it in this great performance by Power and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Andrés Orozco-Estrada.
