Principal Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra from 1995, and then President from 2006 until his death in 2013, Sir Colin Davis performed regularly with the LSO at the Barbican and on tour. As well as featuring on many LSO Live recordings, helping to provide the label with significant profile in its early days, he also recorded widely with Philips, BMG and Erato. His LSO Live releases have won numerous prizes, including Grammy and Gramophone Awards, and a BBC Music Magazine Award (2007), and have covered, among others, repertoire by Berlioz, Dvořák, Elgar, Haydn, MacMillan, Sibelius, Tippett, and Verdi.

Sir Colin was formerly Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra (1967–71), became the Music Director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in 1971, and was Principal Guest Conductor of the New York Philharmonic from 1998 to 2003. Other orchestras he held prominent positions with include the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchetra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, and the English Chamber Orchestra.

Sir Colin was awarded international honours by Italy, France, Germany and Finland. He was appointed CBE in 1965, knighted in 1980, appointed Companion of Honour in 2001, received the Queen’s Medal for Music in December 2009, and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate for Music from Cambridge University in 2011. He was also awarded Classical BRIT awards (Best Male Artist, 2002 and 2008), and the Yehudi Menuhin Prize for his work with young people.
