Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Principal Conductors of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra since its foundation in 1893 by Sir Dan Godfrey have included Rudolf Schwarz, Constantin Silvestri, Sir Charles Groves, Paavo Berglund, Andrew Litton and Yakov Kreizberg. Since her appointment in 2002, Marin Alsop has continued to raise the profile of the Orchestra, which performs orchestral music in concert venues across the south and west of Britain, has appeared at many festivals throughout the country, tours worldwide, and broadcasts nationally on BBC Radio 3 besides being committed to an active Education and Community programme. It performed the first ever complete cycle of the symphonies of Vaughan Williams at the Barbican Centre under Richard Hickox, and took part in a rare performance of Deliusís A Mass of Life at St Paulís Cathedral. The latter work forms part of the Orchestraís extensive Delius discography for Chandos, for which the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra has also recorded works by Britten and a comprehensive series devoted to the orchestral music of Sir Michael Tippett, at the time of his death in 1998 the Orchestraís President Emeritus, all under Richard Hickox.
