About the album

When you go to an LCO concert, you do not just go to listen to a concert, you go to experience a performance. This live recording from Cadogan Hall, in June of 2019 is no exception. Christopher Warren- Green and the orchestra capture the quintessential ‘Englishness’ of Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis perfectly. They then explore the emotional Serenade for Strings of both Josef Suk and Antonín Dvořák, examining the similarities between the pieces.

The London Chamber Orchestra (LCO) combines the skills of some of London’s most exceptional musicians with a rich history at the heart of 20th century classical music.

Having been founded in 1921, we’re the UK’s oldest professional chamber orchestra. We’ve premiered works by a Who’s Who of 20th-century composers, including Stravinsky, Bloch, Vaughan Williams, Prokofiev, Hindemith, Poulenc and Villa Lobos. And that continues today, with premieres by figures such as Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, James MacMillan and Graham Fitkin.
And it’s not just about our London season at Cadogan Hall – we also tour globally, record with major labels and our own LCO Live imprint, and run a large-scale community project, Music Junction. We’re lucky enough to enjoys the Patronage of Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall, and we performed at the royal wedding in 2011 to about two billion people worldwide.
