Each summer, we make our way down to Lewes, Sussex where we are a Resident Orchestra at Glyndebourne Opera Festival. Here we collate some of the reviews!


The Marriage of Figaro

★★★★ The Times

The Wreckers

“The immaculate London Philharmonic”

★★★★ The Times

★★★★★ The Stage

"Robin Ticciati conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra makes sense of the maze of themes"

★★★★ Culture Whisper


"The London Philharmonic Orchestra under Robin Ticciati never flagging through three acts of pounding energy and volumne"

★★★★ Financial Times


"This is all presented with enormous panache and commitment by...the London Philharmonic Orchestra...Ticciati and his musicians give a full-blooded account of the score that certainly kept the drama moving along"

Opera Wire


"The LPO and Glyndebourne Chorus are on top form"

★★★★★ Evening Standard


La bohème

"Much fine playing comes from the London Philharmonic Orchestra"

★★★★ The Times


"Jordan de Souza conducts the London Philharmonic, and it is as if all the colour that has been leached from the stage is brimming over the edge of the pit"

★★★★ The Guardian


"Visser [the director] knows and exploits the power of a visual image to underscore the emotional effect of text and music"

★★★★ Evening Standard 


"The London Philharmonic Orchestra lent an incredible level of detail to Puccini's score, with vivid swathes of orchestral colour rising from the pit"

★★★★The Arts Desk


"Best of all, Jordan de Souza conducts an all-encompassing boheme with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, fleet and sparkling, and with the lyrical music shaped as freshly as if it was composed yesterday"

★★★ Financial Times
