Important partnerships with some of the most prominent concert halls in Europe such as the Royal Festival Hall in London, the Cité de la Musique in Paris, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam have all contributed to a full diary for the foreseeable future. The COE is honoured to have a close association with the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, to appear regularly at the festivals in Lucerne and at Styriarte in Graz, and to have strong links with the concert halls in Baden-Baden, Bonn, Budapest, Brussels, Cologne, Luxembourg, Toulouse, Vienna and many more.
Renowned not only for its remarkable live performances but also for the quality of its recordings, the COE has won many international prizes for its wide repertoire. It is proud of its three Gramophone ‘Record of the Year’ awards, a 2004 Grammy Award, and the MIDEM 2008 ‘Classical Download’ Award.
In 2007, the COE was appointed one of the European Union’s ‘Cultural Ambassadors’, and as a result now benefits from invaluable EU support. Over recent years the Orchestra has also received significant financial support from The Gatsby Charitable Foundation.
