    singing with both exciting attack and gossamer lightness, the London Symphony Chorus were the true vocal heroes of the evening.

    Daily Telegraph - Schumann  "Das Paradies und die Peri" - Barbican 13th January 2015

    Towering over all this was the London Symphony Chorus's magnificent contribution, which combined style, directness, vigour and atmosphere in equal measure.

    Classicalsource - Schumann "Das Paradies und die Peri" - Barbican 12th January 2015

    The London Symphony Chorus gave a masterful performance.

    Artsdesk - Schumann "Das Paradies und die Peri" - Barbican  12th January 2015

    With the London Symphony Chorus on its most alert form too, the performance had tremendous presence.

    The Guardian - Schumann "Das Paradies und die Peri" - Barbican 12th January 2015

    The excellence of the London Symphony Chorus is something one is in danger of taking for granted, so it was good to hear them on their own, sans LSO.

    Seen and Heard - Rachmaninov Vespers - Barbican 1st December 2014
