One of the world’s most distinguished orchestras, the London Philharmonic, balances its rich and successful history with forward-thinking methods for the future. Founded by Sir Thomas Beecham in 1932, the LPO tours internationally, has formed its own record label and recorded film and video game soundtracks. Taking a break from its usual venue of London’s Royal Festival Hall, the London Philharmonic will join forces with the Orfeó Català and the Palau chamber choir in Barcelona’s most prestigious classical venue. The current conductor, Russian born Vladimir Jurowski, has a family history of musical success, with a conductor father and a grandfather who worked as a Soviet film music composer. Jurowski will lead the orchestra, alongside one of the greatest violinists of our time, Leonidas Kavakos, through a performance of works by Jean Sibelius and Johannes Brahms.
