Orchestral Time Machine - Vladimir Jurowski introduces Belief and Beyond Belief

resident

London Philharmonic Orchestra

London Philharmonic Orchestra is recognised today as one of the finest orchestras on the international stage. The Orchestra was founded in 1932 by Sir Thomas Beecham. Since then, its Principal Conductors have included Sir Adrian Boult, Bernard Haitink, Sir Georg Solti, Klaus Tennstedt and Kurt Masur. In 2007, Vladimir Jurowski became the Orchestra’s Principal Conductor.

The LPO has been performing at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall since it opened in 1951, becoming a Resident Orchestra in 1992. It also has flourishing residencies in Brighton and Eastbourne, and performs regularly around the UK. Each summer it plays for Glyndebourne Festival Opera, where it has been Resident Symphony Orchestra for over 50 years. The Orchestra also regularly tours abroad: highlights of the 2017/18 season include visits to Japan, China, Romania, the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria and France.

In its 2018/19 season at Royal Festival Hall the LPO resumes its year-long series Changing Faces: Stravinsky's Journey, delving into the composer's pioneering and provocative works from the 1940s onwards. The orchestra pays tribute to Stravinsky's extraordinary legacy, focusing on the latter stages of his life in Hollywood.

2019 sees a celebration of the music of Britain in festival, Isle of Noises. Not only does the Orchestra explore a range of British music from Purcell to the present day, but it also highlights key works by composers with interesting British connections, including music by Handel and Haydn.

To complement the LPO’s annual summer seasons at Glyndebourne Festival Opera, we are delighted to bring a variety of opera to Royal Festival Hall this season: Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Vladimir Jurowski conducts Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress and brings us the second instalment of the Wagner Ring Cycle – Die Walküre – with a stellar cast of singers. We also welcome the acclaimed tenor Juan Diego Flórez for an evening of popular operatic arias. We are also pleased to welcome back Opera Rara to jointly present Puccini’s first opera, Le Villi.

In its 2017/18 season the LPO launches it’s year-long exploration of Stravinsky’s life: Changing Faces: Stravinsky’s Journey. It also features star performances from Diana Damrau (Strauss’s Four Last Songs), Daniil Trifonov (Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1) and Anne-Sophie Mutter (Penderecki Violin Concerto No. 2).

As the London Philharmonic Orchestra celebrates [Jurowski's] decade as music director, it can look back on a period of unrivalled adventure, taking audiences to places other orchestras never reach
