The London Philharmonic Orchestra is recognised today as one of the finest orchestras on the international stage. The orchestra was founded in 1932 and has been performing at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall since it opened in 1951, becoming a Resident Orchestra in 1992.
In 2020, the LPO presents a new strand of concerts: 2020 Vision. The LPO has chosen pieces that they believe represent the definitive sound of the 21st century, each one separated by exactly two centuries from Beethoven’s world. Beethoven and Sibelius meet Adès and Knussen; Rachmaninoff encounters Wigglesworth and pioneering works from Glass and Shankar.
Following the culmination of 2020 Vision with the world premiere of James MacMillan’s Christmas Oratorio, in 2021 the LPO embarks on its boldest undertaking yet: Wagner's Ring Cycle with Vladimir Jurowski. It presents two star-studded semi-staged complete performances, featuring Torsten Kerl, Ruxandra Donose, Lise Lindstrom and more.
The orchestra also welcomes composer Brett Dean as Composer-in-Residence and performs three of his pieces, including The Players for orchestra and accordion, and as ever, welcome an array of fine artists performing repertoire for all tastes.
