The stylish and vibrant London Chamber Orchestra under the distinguished direction of Christopher Warren-Green continues to attract Britain’s finest musicians to its ranks, bringing exceptional talent, energy, passion and enjoyment to every performance.

As Britain’s oldest chamber orchestra LCO has been inspiring audiences for over 80 years. The essence of the orchestra can be found in its earliest recordings described by Gramophone as ‘ravishing and gloriously unforgettable’. The new generation upholds these rare qualities and in 1995 LCO received a Mercury Music Prize nomination for its recording of James MacMillan’s Seven Last Words from the Cross and have since won unparalleled accolades for its catalogue of recordings on the Virgin record label –

The innovative LCO has given UK premieres of more than 100 works including Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite and the first professional performance in Italian of Mozart’s Idomeneo. The orchestra continues to champion living composers and recent premieres include works by Graham Fitkin and James Francis Brown.

The London Chamber Orchestra’s seductive sound and diversity captivates audiences worldwide. Three major tours to the USA, sell-out concerts in La Scala Milan and Vienna’s Musikverein, a critically acclaimed debut tour of Japan, appearances in Denmark’s Roskilde Rock Festival, at Pete Townshend’s Lifehouse concerts in London and tours to almost every corner of the world attest to LCO’s global allure.

The often-elusive live concert ‘buzz’ is palpable in audience and musicians alike at LCO performances. The orchestra’s members are imbued with a sense of total commitment whilst retaining an indomitable spirit of freedom; these attributes continue to confirm their standing amongst the great chamber orchestras of the world.
