"Not a hair of a note was out of place; this was a performance by a world-class orchestra"The Times
The BSO is one of the UK’s leading orchestras, proudly serving communities throughout the South and South West as well as performing nationally and internationally. It is one of the most dynamic and innovative symphony orchestras in the world, a tradition that dates from its foundation in 1893.
Dedicated to providing world-class music, the BSO performs over 120 concerts each year with some of the finest conductors and soloists in the world. Under Kirill Karabits, our current Principal Conductor, the Orchestra continues to receive rave reviews for both concerts and recordings.
Taking music beyond the concert hall lies at the heart of the BSO’s commitment to engaging with new audiences. BSO musicians participate in an array of projects - from national curriculum based workshops in schools to tea dances for the elderly - through BSO Participate, the Orchestra’s pioneering education and community department that reaches more than 125,000 children and adults each year.
The BSO made its first recording in 1914 and has continued to do so ever since. Now with over 300 titles to its name, the BSO is one of the most recorded orchestras in Britain. Meanwhile, a partnership with BBC Radio 3 sees regular live broadcasts of concerts throughout the UK.
Born in London in 1980, Jack Liebeck is established as one of the most compelling young violinists on the concert platform. He has appeared with all the major British orchestras and with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, Moscow State Symphony, Sinfonica de Navarra, Real Philhamonia de Galicia, Belgian National, Lausanne Chamber, Polish Radio Symphony, Queensland Symphony, Auckland Philharmonia and Indianapolis Symphony, among others. He has performed under the baton of conductors such as Martyn Brabbins, Paul Daniel, Sir Mark Elder, Roy Goodman, Gunter Herbig, Alexander Lazarev, Andrew Litton, Sir Neville Marriner, Sakari Oramo, Libor Pesek, Vasily Petrenko, Jukka Pekka Saraste, Yuri Simonov, Leonard Slatkin and Bramwell Tovey.
