The World's Greatest Music
Take a journey through the LSO's incredible history with some stunning archive photographs.
The London Symphony Orchestra was originally founded when the Henry Wood Queen's Hall Orchestra demanded that its players become solely contracted to the one ensemble. Understandably miffed, a group of players split off and decided to start what would become one of the most legendary orchestras in the world. Here they are at Queen's Hall in 1911, with their conductor Arthur Nikisch. Photo: LSO Archive
