Series philharmonia at 75

In 2020 we mark 75 years since the Philharmonia Orchestra was founded - three quarters of a century of brilliant live music-making, definitive recordings, technological innovation and artistic adventure.

Throughout the year the orchestra’s Philharmonia at 75 series brings you the very best of the Philharmonia - cornerstones of its repertoire, exciting collaborations, brand new music - a snapshot of an orchestra that has always looked to the future.
