BIOGRAPHY

Widely recognised as one of Britain’s finest orchestras, the BBC Philharmonic has built an international reputation for outstanding quality and committed performances over a wide-ranging repertoire, having its own studio in Manchester, where it records programmes and concerts for BBC Radio 3. As well as offering an annual season in Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall, the orchestra performs across England and at the BBC Proms, and is regularly invited to major European cities and festivals. Chief Conductor of the orchestra is Gianandrea Noseda and its Chief Guest Conductor is Vassily Sinaisky. As a consequence of its policy of introducing new and adventurous repertoire, many of the world’s greatest composers have worked with the orchestra, including Luciano Berio, Aaron Copland, Krzysztof Penderecki, Sir Michael Tippett, and Sir William Walton. In 1991 Sir Peter Maxwell Davies became the orchestra’s first Composer / Conductor. He was succeeded by James MacMillan and more recently by the renowned Austrian composer H.K. Gruber. The BBC Philharmonic is partnered with Salford City Council, which enables it to build active links with Salford and its varied communities.
