BBC Symphony Chorus

The BBC Symphony Chorus was founded in 1928 and its early appearances included premieres of Bartók’s Cantata profana, Stravinsky’s Perséphone and Mahler’s Eighth Symphony. This commitment to new music is undiminished today, with premieres and commissions in recent years of works by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Judith Weir and John Tavener.

In its appearances with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and at the BBC Proms, it performs a wide range of challenging repertoire, most of which is broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

As well as featuring in dedicated studio recordings for Radio 3, the chorus has also made commercial recordings, including Holst’s Choral Symphony and Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius under Sir Andrew Davis (the former receiving a Grammy nomination), Szymanowski’s Stabat mater, Harnasie and Symphony No 3 under Edward Gardner and Brett Dean’s Vexations and Devotions.

Uniquely among symphony choruses, the BBC Symphony Chorus has specialised in performing large-scale a cappella choral repertoire, including Schoenberg’s Friede auf Erden and Poulenc’s Figure humaine.

Under its Director, Stephen Jackson, the chorus has made commercial discs of works by Carl Rutti and Judith Bingham, and performed specially commissioned works by Richard Rodney Bennett, Mark-Anthony Turnage and Stephen Montague.
