The BBC Philharmonic is a professional broadcasting symphony orchestra based in Manchester, England. It is one of five radio orchestras maintained by the British Broadcasting Corporation. Formed in 1922, the BBC Philharmonic has made over 150 recordings, and for the most part, it has steered clear of orchestral 'warhorses'. Series of British film music, the music of George Enescu, and Stokowski's Bach transcriptions have been featured, all on the Chandos label. [Wikipedia] Chief Conductor Gianandrea Noseda was appointed in September 2002. His successes with the Orchestra include their compelling Beethoven Symphony Cycle at The Bridgewater Hall in 2005, which was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and then made available for free download from the BBC Radio 3 website. As well as winning great critical acclaim, the initiative was taken up by 1.4 million people, and won the Orchestra an ITV South Bank Show Award.
