“All I can say – again – is lucky Liverpool.” The Sunday Times
The award-winning Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is the UK’s oldest continuing professional symphony orchestra. The origins of the Orchestra’s concert series date back to the formation of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic by a group of Liverpool music lovers in 1840.
Vasily Petrenko was appointed Principal Conductor of the Orchestra in September 2006 and in September 2009 became Chief Conductor. His dynamic music partnership with the Orchestra has attracted world-wide critical acclaim and drawn new audiences, including many young people, to live classical music.
Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (RLPO) have won the BBC Music Magazine recording of the year award in 2016 for their recording of Tchaikovsky’s first, second and fifth symphonies on Onyx Classics. The disc won the public vote in the orchestral category, before the jury crowned it the best recording of 2016.
Albion Media is employed to promote the RLPO in the national press and has been a key part of the success story that has established the orchestra and Petrenko as one of the most exciting combinations on the UK arts scene.
