About

The 50 Greatest Pieces of Classical Music is a selection of the most beloved classical works, now recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the world’s leading ensembles, under noted conductor David Parry. The aim has been to create a collection that is ideal as an introduction to classical music for the beginner, while offering outstanding new recordings for the connoisseur. Never before has an orchestra with the stature of the LPO recorded a collection this comprehensive, giving their own interpretations of “the classics”.

All recordings were made in September 2009 at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, Royal Festival Hall and Henry Wood Hall. In every stage of the recording process, state of the art equipment has been used to achieve the very best sound quality attainable.

The 50 Greatest Pieces of Classical Music has sold over 200,000 copies (in terms of album-equivalent streams) and spent over three years as one of the top 10 classical albums on iTunes.

Recognised today as one of the finest orchestras on the international stage, the London Philharmonic was founded in 1932 by Sir Thomas Beecham. Since then, its Principal Conductors have included Sir Adrian Boult, Bernard Haitink, Sir Georg Solti, Klaus Tennstedt and Kurt Masur. In 2007, Vladimir Jurowski became the Orchestra’s 12th Principal Conductor.

David Parry has conducted a number of respected orchestras all over Europe since the early 1980s, and now gives concerts regularly with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Philharmonia Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Orchestra and Madrid Symphony Orchestra.
