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).
More recently the recording of Britten’s Billy Budd conducted by Daniel Harding won Best Opera Recording at the 2010 Grammy Awards and the recording of Wagner’s Götterdämmerung conducted by Sir Mark Elder won Best Opera Recording in the Gramophone Awards 2010.
Since the advent of “live” recordings, in which concert performances have subsequently been released on CD, the London Symphony Chorus has taken part in many such recordings, principally with the LSO on their pioneering LSO Live label.
Most LSO Live releases featuring the London Symphony Chorus are listed on the main discography page along with the dates are when the recordings were first issued.
