Celebration! Lawrence Foster 75 years

Today, the brilliantly talented conductor Lawrence Foster turns 75. We can’t let this day go by without a few mentions of the rich and colourful oeuvre of this wonderful musician. At age 75, Foster is still full of energy and is musically at a unparalleled heights. 

Foster has collaborated multiple times with PENTATONE. Just this year, two of our releases were enriched with his great conducting: Der Zigeunerbaron and Fantasies, Rhapsodies & Daydreams with Arabella Steinbacher.  According to Musicweb International

”Lawrence Foster conducts the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo in a stylish performance assisting in bringing this music vividly to life.” HRAudio can merely agree with this: ”Lawrence Foster works his usual magic of transforming apparently mundane orchestral accompaniments into nuggets of musical gold.”

On behalf of the whole PENTATONE team we would like to wish Mr. Foster a wonderful birthday and we hope we will be able to enjoy his conducting for many more years!
