Opening the Glyndebourne 2019 Festival, the Orchestra received great praise for their performance in Berlioz's La Damnation de Faust under the baton of Robin Ticciati.
‘The London Philharmonic play with refined sensuousness of detail’ Tim Ashley, 19 May 2019, The Guardian
‘Ticciati encourages diaphanous, almost period-instrument style textures for Berlioz’s inspired orchestrations, and the London Philharmonic responds with scintillating playing’ Richard Morrison, 20 May 2019, The Times
‘Drawing “period” sonorities from the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conductor Robin Ticciati works with the hellish visions of Hyemi Shin’s set designs to emphasise the extremities of Berlioz’s weird and wonderful scoring.’ Peter Quantrill, 20 May 2019, Arts Desk
‘The LPO responded with playing of elegance and dramatic force, with some truly outstanding performances by individual sections’ Melanie Eskenazi, 20 May 2019, Music OMH
