 Update me on new releases by Foster

Lawrence Foster (b1941)

The son of a Romanian émigré family, Lawrence Foster studied conducting in Los Angeles with the German conductor Fritz Zweig and piano with Joanne Grauden, and also came into contact with Karl Böhm and Bruno Walter. Having made his conducting debut in 1960 with the Young Musicians’ Debut Orchestra in California, he subsequently became its music director, in addition to serving from 1962 until 1965 as conductor of the San Francisco Ballet, with which he toured extensively. This was followed by a period, 1965 to 1968, as assistant conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, working with its chief conductor Zubin Mehta and forging a close relationship with the orchestra that continued thereafter. Foster won the Koussevitzky Conducting Prize at the Berkshire Music Center, Tanglewood, in 1966, also working there with Gunther Schuller, Erich Leinsdorf and Sir Adrian Boult.
