London Symphony Orchestra, named as one of the top five orchestras in the world by Gramophone, a UK magazine devoted to classical music gave a concert at Warsaw’s Teatr Wielki - Opera Narodowa on April 6.

The LSO was established in 1904 and has a unique ethos and an inimitable signature sound. It has been the Resident Orchestra at the Barbican in the City of London since the centre opened in 1982, where it gives 70 symphonic concerts every year, and performs a further 70 concerts worldwide on tour.

The ensemble is also famous for recording soundtracks for such well-known movies as Star Wars, The Sound of Music, Titanic and Harry Potter, while their relationship with cinema reaches as far as the distant history of silent film.

During their Warsaw concert the Londoners treated the audience to a selection of classical music pieces: Bianca da Molena by Mieczysław Karłowicz, Frederic Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor as well as Dimitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8 in C minor. The concert was conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, the chief guest conductor of the LSO, music director of the National Symphony Orchestra, Washington and Teatro Regio, Turin, and winner of the 2016 International Opera Award for Best Conductor. With Nikolai Lugansky at the piano.
