All the latest reviews and awards for Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra concerts and recordings.

Critical Acclaim

"Vasily Petrenko has quite an ear for exciting young pianists – his partnerships with Simon Trpčeski and Daniil Trifonov are fast becoming legendary – and here he introduced another: the Swissborn Teo Gheorghiu (to perform Schubert’s Wanderer Fantasy) who combines the hairstyle of a Premiership footballer with the soul of a poet."

The Guardian
"….this is a searing account of the Rite…there’s a visceral energy to the RLPO’s playing, the orchestra cultivating a rawness of sound.’ Performance **** Recording ****"

BBC Music recording review – Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring (ONYX)
"The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic was born in the same year as Tchaikovsky so perhaps this is a romance that was written in the stars. The orchestra’s chief conductor, Vasily has wrapped up a Tchaikovsky cycle in rip-roaring, wonderfully seductive style. *****"
