Biography:

Lawrence Amundrud received his Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Regina, being awarded the most distinguished graduate in the Fine Arts. He also completed his Master of Music degree from the University of Regina while studying under Thomas Manshardt.

In 1979 Lawrence was a winner in the first Regina Symphony concerto competition. The review in the Leader Post stated “Amundrud demonstrated a high degree of sensitivity and technical ability in his free-wheeling performance”. In 1983, with only 24 hours’ notice, Amundrud stepped in to play the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto for Thomas Manshardt. The local press reported that “Amundrud’s playing from the outset was firm, clear, and decisive, with the fiercely difficult octave passages and intricate finger patterns well accomplished. The charming melodies were played with a gentle pathos.”

In 1985 Amundrud performed the Saint-Saens Second Piano Concerto with the Georgian Bay Symphony, and a recital of the music of Anton Rubinstein at the Liszt Society’s Festival at the University of Missouri. In 1994 Amundrud collaborated with Manshardt on the book Aspects of Cortot (Appian Publications, Great Britain). In 1997 he played in the Chopin festival hosted by David Dubal at the Kosciuszko Centre in New York. Amundrud has recorded recitals for CBC radio in Montreal, and has been heard on local and regional broadcasts. He performs annual recitals for the Conservatory of Performing Arts.
