LONDON WOODWIND ORCHESTRA.
The London Woodwind Orchestra is an 18-piece chamber orchestra of flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons and saxophones featuring principal players from the UK's leading orchestras. The LWO gave their debut performance on 23 April 2016 at St John’s Smith Square. It was a landmark event being the first ever concert given by a professional woodwind orchestra.
The woodwind orchestra is an ensemble and genre that is virtually unknown to the musical world. The concert featured live performances of the works from the Twisted Skyscape album along with Bright Spirit by Judith Bingham (see sound file to left).
The two founders of the London Woodwind Orchestra are composer Christopher Hussey and conductor Shea Lolin. They began working together in 2007 and have developed the woodwind orchestra as a musical genre. Read more about the London Woodwind Orchestra.
