London Symphony Chorus

Formed in 1966, the London Symphony Chorus has added to its broad repertoire by commissioning works from Sir John Tavener, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Michael Berkeley and Jonathan Dove. In April 2008, it premiered James MacMillan’s St John Passion with the London Symphony Orchestra and Sir Colin Davis at the Barbican Centre. The Orchestra and Chorus are regular partners and worked under Sir Colin Davis on his notable Berlioz series, including most recently Benvenuto Cellini. Among many other works, they have recorded Sibelius’s Kullervo symphony, which received the award for Best Choral Recording from BBC Music magazine in 2007, and Verdi’s Falstaff, which won a Grammy for Best Opera Recording. The Chorus also took part in the performance and recording of Valery Gergiev’s complete Mahler cycle with the London Symphony Orchestra. Its extensive discography includes many recordings with Richard Hickox for Chandos, most recently of Vaughan Williams’s A Sea Symphony. In 2007, their performance of Haydn’s Die Schöpfung under Sir Colin Davis was considered by Seen and Heard to be the performance of the year. The London Symphony Chorus appears regularly at all the major London venues, tours extensively throughout Europe and has visited Israel, Australia, the Far East and the USA. www.lsc.org.uk
