London SinfoniettaThe London Sinfonietta’s mission is to place the best contemporary classical music at the heart of today’s culture; engaging and challenging the public through inspiring performances of the highest standard, and taking risks to develop new work and talent. Founded in 1968, the ensemble’s commitment to making new music has seen it commission over 300 works, and premiere many hundreds more.

Resident at Southbank Centre with a busy touring schedule across the UK and abroad, its core is 18 Principal Players, representing some of the best solo and ensemble musicians in the world. The group also works with talented emerging players, to ensure the unique expertise of its Principals is passed on to the next generation of performers.

Having held a world-leading position in education and participation work for many years, the London Sinfonietta continues this with a belief that arts participation is transformational to individuals and communities, and new music is relevant to people’s lives.

The ensemble has an extensive back catalogue of recordings made over 46 years, which have been released on numerous prestigious labels as well as its own London Sinfonietta Label. Most recently, a CD of music by Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen was released on Dacapo, and a series of Sinfonietta Shorts downloads on NMC Recordings.

The London Sinfonietta won the prestigious RPS Music Award for Ensemble in 2010.
