     London Symphony Orchestra

    This orchestra was founded in 1904 as was the first orchestra to be a self-governing organisation.  Its debut concert was under the baton of Hans Richter who remained with them until 1911 when Sir Edward Elgar took over the position.  It has had many acclaimed conductors that include Claudio Abbado, Sir Colin Davis, Michael Tilson-Thomas, Andre Previn who is the Conductor Laureate and the holder of the current position, Valery Gergiev.  Its concert in Paris in 1906 saw them as the first British orchestra to perform a concert overseas, their concert in the United Stated saw them as the first British orchestra to play in Northern America, and they have since appeared all over the world with a variety of acclaimed guest conductors and soloists.  Alongside their numerous classical recordings they are renowned for performing film scores and on pop albums.  The movies include Raiders of the Lost Ark. Braveheart, Superman, two of the Harry Potter films and all of the Star Wars films.  The pop albums include Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles, and Thriller and Bad by Michael Jackson.  They have also recorded for the video game Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness.
