Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1946 by Sir Thomas Beecham. Today the Orchestra is committed to bringing exciting music-making of the highest quality to the widest possible audience. Whilst the Orchestra is based in London, it tours regularly throughout the country, confirming its role as Britain's National Orchestra.

The Orchestra has established a successful residency at Nottingham's Royal Concert Hall currently reflected by a series of ten concerts linked to an imaginative community and education programme. In 1995/1996 the Orchestra launched a new series of concerts at the Royal Albert Hall with the aim of making its London home there.

Since 1975 its Music Directors have included Antal Dorati, André Previn and Vladimar Ashkenazy. Daniele Gatti has been appointed Music Director of the Royal Philharmonic with effect from September 1996.

The orchestra is currently undertaking a recording contract with Tring International for 125 CDs, the largest-ever recording contract between one orchestra and a record company. It has also formed a close association with Classic FM.

The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra was founded in 1987 to cater for light classical music and has appeared with artists such as Dione Warwick, Jose Carreras and Julian Lloyd Webber.
