The Philharmonia

Renowned throughout the world thanks to its tours and extraordinary recording legacy, the Philharmonia Orchestra is the UK’s foremost musical pioneer, leading the field for the quality of its playing and for its innovative approach to audience development, residencies, music education, and global outreach. Under Esa-Pekka Salonen, its Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor, and collaborating with the world’s most sought-after artists, the Orchestra has secured a place at the heart of British musical life. Committed to presenting the same quality live music making in venues throughout the country as it brings to London and the great concert halls of the world, it has the greatest claim of any orchestra to be the UK’s National Orchestra. In 1995 it launched a much admired UK and International Residency Programme and during the 2012 / 13 season not only performs more than thirty-five concerts at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, but also celebrates its sixteenth year as Resident Orchestra of De Montfort Hall in Leicester and its twelfth year as Orchestra in Partnership at The Anvil in Basingstoke; it also enters the second year of its residencies at the new Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury and the Three Choirs Festival. Under Salonen, the Philharmonia Orchestra gave a Beethoven Cycle at the Bonn Beethovenfest in October 2012, undertook a tour of the US in November, which featured a residency at Berkeley, California and performances at Disney Hall, Los Angeles and Lincoln Center, New York, and in February 2013 toured Japan.
