The London City Philharmonic is a newly founded orchestra that is dedicated to providing young composers with an opportunity to have their works performed, also, providing performance opportunities to young soloists. The London City Philharmonic does this both through concerts that combine lesser-known works with more established repertoire and by recording rarely performed works for posterity. In doing so, the London City Philharmonic supports the musical community by providing performance opportunities to young musicians, promoting contemporary works, and making such works more approachable by complementing them with the standard classical music repertoire that is more familiar to the broader public.
Details of our next concert on Saturday 9th of February are here.
In the 2018/2019 season, London City Philharmonic will perform the UK premiere of three works by upcoming young composers:
Fredrik Gran "Pictures of Fields Without Fences"
Branka Popovic "Stardust"
Martina Tomner "Tempelmusik"
Brahms Symphony No. 4 Excerpts
Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperin
Mendelssohn A Midsummer Night's Dream Overture excerpt
