The LFO's repertoire embraces the very widest range - from eclectic
and contemporary to classical and baroque. Its versatility is demonstrated
in recordings - ranging from Holst's Planets to JC Bach's
Symphonies Concertantes. The excellence of the playing is reflected
in the outstanding reviews LFO discs have universally received:
"As expected, performances are superb." FANFARE (USA)
In the UK the LFO has created innovative concert series: Cathedral
Classics, a summer festival throughout Britain, and in London
Birthday Honours at the South Bank, Four Seasons at St
John's Smith Square, and Winter concerts at the Royal Albert Hall.
Overseas, the LFO has been invited as far afield as South America
and the Far East and become involved in fascinating projects, including
representing Great Britain at the Seoul Olympics. It has performed
at major concert halls throughout Europe, including the Berlin Philharmonie
and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
"The success here was enormous, with an endless ovation."
DARIO ABC (Madrid)
Ten million BBC TV viewers, six million Classic FM radio listeners
and tens of thousands of concert-goers agree - on disc, on stage
and on tour, the LFO is an outstanding example of twentieth century
music-making - versatile, virtuosic, and very, very good.
