London Philharmonic Orchestra was formed in 1932 by Sir Thomas Beecham, and played its first concert on 7 October 1932 at the Queen's Hall, London. Seventy-eight years after Sir Thomas Beecham founded the Orchestra, it is recognised today as one of the finest orchestras on the international stage. Following Beecham, the Orchestra's Principal Conductorship has been passed from one illustrious musician to another, amongst them Sir Adrian Boult, Bernard Haitink, Sir Georg Solti, Klaus Tennstedt and Kurt Masur.

As the Orchestra celebrated its 75th birthday in 2007, Vladimir Jurowski became the Orchestra’s twelfth Principal Conductor. Combining a prodigious talent for conducting with a distinctive flair for imaginative programming, Jurowski has introduced audiences to works by Hartmann, Kancheli, Korngold, Myaskovsky, Pintscher, Torsten Rasch, Turnage and Yusupov and led illuminating accounts of the standard classics. Following in-depth analysis of the music of Tchaikovsky and Schnittke in previous seasons, he turns his attention in 2010/11 to the works of Mahler.
