« ...we were certainly treated to a bewitching opening, with Simon Rattle and the LSO's string section producing a tone so warm and shimmering as to transport you from northern winter to sunnier climes faster than a magic carpet. »

Exuberancia y virtuosismo con la LSO, Tetzlaff y Martín

El director Jaime Martín © Alexander Lindstrom
Obras de Falla, Lalo y Stravinsky para un juego de referencias y variaciones en torno al carácter popular de melodías que respiraban frescura y vitalidad, y que proponían plasmar esa misma sinergia entre el director Jaime Martín y la London Symphony Orchestra.

Brillos y sombras en el primer concierto de Ibermúsica

Primer concierto de la nueva temporada de Ibermúsica, la cual, entre gran expectación, arrancaba con una de las mejores formaciones orquestales, la London Symphony Orchestra, y Szeps-Znaider al frente del conjunto y del pianista Dennis Kozhukhin.

El segundo concierto de Sir Simon Rattle y la London Symphony en el Festival de Santander estuvo conformado por un programa fuertemente vinculado con la velada previa. Mahler, Dvorak y Janacek son tres compositores cuyas fechas y localidades de nacimiento están respectivamente separadas en el tiempo y en la distancia por menos de dos décadas y 300 kilómetros.

Rattle y la LSO alcanzan lo sublime en el Festival de Santander

El Festival de Santander, en el contexto de una programación diversa, sabiamente diseñada y llena de alicientes de primer orden, ha ofrecido al público español la oportunidad de lujo de disfrutar de la presencia de Sir Simon Rattle y la London Symphony Orchestra con dos programas que serán recordados largo tiempo en su historia.

Gardiner, la LSO y Anderszewski: un engranaje perfecto

Sir John Eliot Gardiner © Sim Canetty Clarke
La perfección se dice de muchas maneras. Y, si de música se trata, la London Symphony Orchestra constituye una apuesta genuinamente segura -tuvimos la fortuna de comprobarlo en Madrid a comienzos de temporada-. De un modo especial, es preciso señalar, en aquellos programas que propician la colaboración de partenaires -ya sea en el podio, ya sea en los roles solistas- condignos, que correspondan sin fricción a la entidad del llamado.

Haitink, Ax y la LSO: perderse en la aventura conocida

Arranca la temporada XLVIII de Ibermúsica y uno se encamina al Auditorio Nacional con el convencimiento de que asistirá a un concierto prácticamente infalible. Igual que leer el Tristam Shandy o ver Casablanca: el trance tiene aroma de ritual.

La inolvidable experiencia de escuchar a Bernard Haitink

La London Symphony Orchestra con Bernard Haitink a la cabeza ha recalado en Madrid una temporada más de la mano de Ibermúsica. El director neerlandés ha presentado su personalísima visión de un programa con obras de Mendelssohn y Brahms; les acompañó en este viaje la violinista Veronika Eberle.

Mahler en los brazos de Rattle

Sir Simon Rattle, al frente de la LSO, volcó toda la pasión que le profesa al compositor bohemio en una interpretación de la Sinfonía "Trágica" que quedará en la memoria como una de las mejores intepretaciones de la obra de Mahler en el Festival de Granada.
Biography

From delivering artistic excellence on stage, in recordings and on film, to its world-leading music education and community programme, the London Symphony Orchestra strives to bring great music to as many people as possible. Established in 1904, the LSO was one of the first self-governing orchestras, built on the values of partnership and artistic ownership. That entrepreneurial spirit continues today.

The LSO has been the Resident Orchestra at the Barbican in the City of London since the Centre opened in 1982. Every year, it gives 70 concerts there and performs over 50 worldwide. The LSO also programmes concerts and workshops at LSO St Luke’s through its pioneering community and education programme, LSO Discovery, which was one of the first in the UK. Much of LSO Discovery’s work is captured and disseminated digitally, enabling enthusiasts, pupils and teachers from around the world to benefit from its activities. The Orchestra also champions new music, regularly commissioning some of the foremost British composers to write significant new works for full orchestra and mixed-ability ensembles.

The LSO has developed a close family of artists who continually demonstrate their commitment to this Orchestra, with Sir Simon Rattle as Music Director, Gianandrea Noseda and François-Xavier Roth as Principal Guest Conductors, Michael Tilson Thomas as Conductor Laureate and André Previn as Conductor Emeritus. It also enjoys long-standing relationships with some of the world’s greatest conductors and soloists who relish the boundless professional ambitions that the LSO offers.

The LSO has a history of innovation that helps to keep it relevant and contemporary. With the formation of its own recording label LSO Live in 1999, the Orchestra brought about a revolution in how live orchestral music was recorded. Since then, LSO Live has produced over 120 releases and continually embraces new digital technologies, having made pioneering moves into digital film, Blu-Ray Audio, downloads and streaming. The Orchestra has more recordings to its name than any other orchestra, and many millions have enjoyed the LSO through its work as a leading orchestra for film, which includes hundreds of classic scores from Star Wars to The King’s Speech and Indiana Jones.

The LSO is determined to ensure the future of great music throughout the world and in its London home. The Orchestra is a leading partner in Culture Mile in the City of London alongside the Corporation, the Barbican Centre, the Museum of London and the Guildhall School. Its Barbican Residency is funded by The Corporation of London and the LSO is a National Portfolio Organisation of the Arts Council England. The Orchestra relies on all of its strategic partnerships at home and abroad, plus its generous funders, to enable it to continue delivering a dynamic range of work.
