Info for LCO Live: Vaughan Williams, Suk, Dvořák



Celebrating their 100th anniversary, the London Chamber Orchestra release a live recording taken from a highly-celebrated performance at Cadogan Hall, London in 2019, featuring three sublime works for string orchestra.

When you go to an LCO concert, you do not just go to listen to a concert, you go to experience a performance and this live recording is no exception. Christopher Warren- Green and the orchestra capture the quintessential Englishness of Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis and explore the emotional and musical connection between Suk and Dvorák's Serenade for Strings.

London Chamber Orchestra
For over 100 years, the London Chamber Orchestra (LCO) has established an enviable reputation as an innovative and adventurous ensemble, having premiered works by a veritable Who’s Who of 20th-century composers, including Stravinsky, Vaughan Williams, Respighi, Delius, de Falla, Finzi, Prokofiev, Poulenc and Villa Lobos. Under the charismatic leadership of Principal Conductor Christopher Warren-Green and with the skills of London’s most exceptional musicians, that reputation still stands today, with premieres by figures such as the late Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, James MacMillan and Graham Fitkin, as well as a host of young composers.

LCO performs frequently with internationally renowned soloists and conductors, who have recently included Alison Balsom, Lang Lang, Pekka Kuusisto, Lawrence Zazzo, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Han-Na Chang, Sol Gabetta, Natalie Clein and Julian Lloyd Webber.

The orchestra’s London season is based at Cadogan Hall. Aside from its national credentials, LCO is also recognised globally, having appeared in concert halls around the world – from La Scala in Milan, to City Hall in Hong Kong, and throughout the Far East, the USA and Europe. As well as recordings for EMI, Virgin and Sony, it has also recorded a number of CDs as part of the​‘LCO Live’ series on Signum Records.
