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 its 2019/20 season at Royal Festival Hall, the LPO continues its celebration of the music of Britain in the series 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 Handel and Haydn.
During the second half of the season, the LPO present the first part of a new strand of concerts: 2020 Vision. Just as the defining masterpieces of Beethoven and his contemporaries punctuated the first two decades of the 19th century, the LPO have chosen pieces that they believe represent the definitive sound of the 21st; each one separated by exactly two centuries from Beethoven’s world. A piece from 1801 encounters a piece from 2001. Beethoven meets Adès, Dutilleux and Knussen. Louis Spohr encounters Einojuhani Rautavaara.
