The London Chamber Orchestra, the UK’s oldest chamber orchestra, has nurtured the new and paid homage to the traditional since 1921. Since 1988 Principal Conductor and Music Director Christopher Warren-Green has brought together the inspirational musicians and repertoire for which LCO is renowned. The remarkable acoustic and intimate ambience of St John’s, Smith Square, its London home, enable the LCO - the only chamber orchestra resident in London - to give vibrant performances and establish a close rapport with its audiences. The recordings on the LCO Live label, in partnership with Signum Classics, are the result of this happy marriage of orchestra and venue.
"We have been developing LCO Live with Signum Classics for just over two years. I believe these first three releases give a wonderful reflection of LCO’s concerts at St John’s. I hope you enjoy them.
Christopher Warren-Green, Music Director, LCO
"The concerts of Warren-Green and the London Chamber Orchestra at St John’s, Smith Square are’t often noticed in the press, but their large regular audience knows that they are some of the most exciting in London."
