The London Symphony Chorus has made over 140 recordings, many under the late Richard Hickox, including Britten’s Peter Grimes, which received a Grammy Award. Two further Grammys were received for Berlioz’s Les Troyens under Sir Colin Davis and the LSO in 2000.
Other collaborations with Sir Colin Davis and the London Symphony Orchestra on the LSO Live label as well as the other celebrated Berlioz recordings, are Britten’s Peter Grimes, Verdi’s Falstaff (which won a Grammy Award), Sibelius’s Kullervo (which won a BBC Music Magazine Award).
