The London Philharmonic Orchestra has enjoyed relationships with some of the most distinguished composers since it was founded in 1932. None were closer to the ensemble than Malcolm Arnold, who began his musical career from within its very ranks. A mutual and productive respect between the Orchestra and John McCabe has grown from their first collaborations in 1972; the composer’s own description of the Orchestra’s musicians as ‘courteous colleagues of great musical insight’ exemplifies a vigorous and moving partnership.
