Original portrait by Clyde Keller
Lawrence Leighton Smith
Encore performance, Oregon Symphony
Portland, Oregon, 1975
This vintage 1975 portrait of symphony conductor and pianist Lawrence Leighton Smith (born April 8, 1936) was captured at the conclusion of an encore performance by the Oregon Symphony. Originally published in a local Portland magazine (One Dollar, edited by James Kiehl) the image proved so popular as to be used extensively (several million impressions reported) by the Oregon Symphony in their promotions for the following year.
Lawrence Smith served as music director of the Oregon Symphony between 1973-1980. As a guest conductor he has been associated with domestic and international orchestras. Here in Oregon he served as the music director of the Sunriver Music Festival for over 17 seasons.
According to Wikipedia his recordings include “The Moscow Sessions” for Sheffield Lab (for which he became the first American born conductor to conduct the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra in 1986). Sheffield lab is well established as one of the first audiophile labels to perfect the analog recording process during the digital era. As a pianist Wikipedia lists these artists he has accompanied: Franco Corelli, Sherrill Milnes, Zara Nelsova, Ruggiero Ricci, Jennie Tourel, Renata Tebaldi, Walter Trampler, and Pinchas Zukerman.
