About Bavarian Radio Chorus

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is one of five world-class orchestras based in London, a city where concert life in its modern form has roots three centuries deep. In 1813, a group of professional musicians founded the Philharmonic Society to organize regular concerts of orchestral music, and a century later, this Society was granted a royal charter by King George V, making it the Royal Philharmonic Society (RPS). Notable persons associated as principal conductor or music director have included Antal Dorati, Walter Weller, André Previn, and Vladimir Ashkenazy, Yuri Temirkanov, Daniele Gatti, and Charles Dutoit. The orchestra plays its main series at the Royal Albert Hall with a few concerts also given at the Barbican Centre in the City of London.
