English Chamber Orchestra

English Chamber Orchestra

Real Name:
The English Chamber Orchestra
Profile:
The most recorded chamber orchestra in the world, its discography containing 857 recordings of over 1,500 works by more than 400 composers.

The ECO has also performed in more countries than any other orchestra, and played with many of the world’s greatest musicians. The American radio network CPRN has selected ECO as one of the world’s greatest ‘living’ orchestras. The illustrious history of the orchestra features many major musical figures. Benjamin Britten was the orchestra’s first Patron and a significant musical influence. The ECO’s long relationship with Daniel Barenboim led to an acclaimed complete cycle of Mozart piano concertos as live performances and recordings, followed later by two further recordings of the complete cycle, with Murray Perahia and Mitsuko Uchida. Paul Watkins has been the ECO’s Music Director and Principal Conductor since 2009, and Sir Colin Davis was appointed Conductor Emeritus in 2010.
