Some earlier highlights
September 2015’s performance of Taneyev’s John of Damascus with the LPO under Vladimir Jurowski is also available to hear on InstantEncore.
The Choir has recorded extensively over its 75 years beginning with Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms with the LPO under Ernest Ansermet in 1947.
Recently released CDs with the London Philharmonic Orchestra include the Dvořák Requiem conducted by Neeme Järvi, Brahms’s Ein Deutsches Requiem with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and Holst’s The Planets Suite and Haydn’s The Seven Last Words of our Saviour on the Cross under Vladimir Jurowski.
Earlier recordings have included Oussama Rahbani’s specially commissioned work Poeme Symphonique written for the opening of the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Jameel Gallery of Islamic Art, combining the LPO and Lebanese musicians under the baton of Ion Marin; and Kurt Masur’s critically acclaimed War Requiem performed in 2005 on the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe.
All recordings on the LPO’s own label are available online from the LPO.
"Jurowski, with the LPO and its fabulous choir, offers the best of both worlds, juxtaposing the original instrumental movements with the later choral versions."
