U.S. Violinist to Perform at National Theater

May 1, 2014

Acclaimed U.S. violinist Kevin Lawrence will perform a program featuring U.S. chamber music Sept. 3 at 5 p.m., as part of the National Theater’s new Music at Dusk concert series (TT, Aug. 21).

Like the highly successful Theater at Noon program, the new series is the brainchild of theater director Jody Steiger, and is designed to attract the after-work crowd. The one-hour concerts take place in the National Theater’s elegant foyer every Thursday at 5 p.m. The price of admission is just ¢1,000 ($1.70).

Lawrence’s recording of the violin works of U.S. composer Arthur Foote has been featured in the United States on the classical-music program “Performance Today,” formerly produced by NPR, and PBS’s “Not For Ourselves Alone.” Thursday’s recital features two works by Foote, “Legend” and “Ballade,” as well as “Homage to Iran” by Henry Cowell and Ravel’s Sonata for Violin and Piano. The Juilliard graduate will be accompanied by Costa Rican pianist Laura Castro.
