Since its formation the London Sinfonietta has earned an international reputation for its performances and recordings of twentieth century music. Its artistic policy embraces an essential commitment to the work of living composers and aims to increase access to new music through innovative ways of presentation and a highly developed education programme.

The ensemble performs an enormously diverse repertoire, for small to very large forces. Of 225 world premiere performances, over 100 have been specially commissioned. It enjoys close associations with many of the world's most established living composers, and champions the music of younger generations.

The Sinfonietta presents regular London concerts at the South Bank Centre, where it is an Associate. It is also a regular visitor to major international festivals. The ensemble has made over 100 recordings, winning awards for many of its discs, including the highly successful Symphony No. 3 by Henryk Górecki, which has sold almost 1 million copies worldwide.

Since 1983 the Sinfonietta's flourishing education programme has encouraged creative music-making among as wide a public as possible. Sinfonietta Response and Explorations events complement the education programme, with films, workshops and discussions adding to the enjoyment and appreciation of the music presented: to-date Response projects have been held throughout England, and in Germany, Japan, and Norway.

The London Sinfonietta receives support from the Arts Council of England, the BBC, the British Council, and the Performing Right Society.
