Listen Again - concert streaming

Nothing can replace the experience of a live orchestral concert. We truly believe that. But we also know that you can't always get to the London Philharmonic Orchestra's concerts in London or on tour.

We hope you will join us online for these concerts.

Filmed concert now online: Górecki's Symphony No. 4


 

When Henryk Górecki's Third Symphony (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs) became the best selling piece of classical music of all time, the world wondered how he would follow it. Sadly, the Polish composer died in 2010, before he had the chance to premiere his Symphony No 4. Since his death, Górecki's son Mikołaj has worked on the detailed manuscript his father left, and this performance by the London Philharmonic Orchestra – recorded on 12 April at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall – was the symphony's first ever airing.

We filmed the performance, and you can watch it on the Guardian website.
