Notable triumphs have included performances of 20th-century masterpieces such as Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex and Schoenberg’s Gurrelieder (subsequently released as a critically lauded live recording), while major operatic milestones have included the European première of Shostakovich’s Orango and an acclaimed performance of Dallapiccola’s neglected Il prigioniero. At the lighter end of the repertoire, performances of Singin’ in the Rain, Yeomen of the Guard and Die Fledermaus have led to a burgeoning relationship with John Wilson, while Philharmonia Voices has also been central to the orchestra’s groundbreaking multi-media projects, including the award-winning touring installation ‘Universe of Sound’ and the first-ever screenings of Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey with live soundtrack.
The members of Philharmonia Voices are drawn from some of the finest young singers in the country, many of them either at the start of their professional careers or completing their conservatoire studies. The size and make-up of the choir is able to be tailored precisely to the varying demands of each collaboration by Director Aidan Oliver, providing the Philharmonia Orchestra with a choral partnership of outstanding quality and unique flexibility.
