Notes and Editorial Reviews

Celebrating their 100th anniversary, the London Chamber Orchestra release a live recording taken from a highly-celebrated performance at Cadogan Hall, London in 2019, featuring three sublime works for string orchestra. When you go to an LCO concert, you do not just go to listen to a concert, you go to experience a performance and this live recording is no exception. Christopher Warren- Green and the orchestra capture the quintessential ‘Englishness’ of Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis and explore the emotional and musical connection between Suk and Dvorák's Serenade for Strings.
