    The English Chamber Orchestra is the most recorded chamber orchestra in the world, its discography containing 891 recordings of over 1,500 works by more than 400 composers. The ECO has also performed in more countries than any other orchestra, and played with many of the world’s greatest musicians. The American radio network CPRN has selected ECO as one of the world’s greatest ‘living’ orchestras. The illustrious history of the orchestra features many major musical figures. Benjamin Britten was the orchestra’s first Patron and a significant musical influence. The ECO’s long relationship with such great musicians as Slava Rostropovich, Pinchas Zukerman, and earlier with Daniel Barenboim led to an acclaimed complete cycle of Mozart piano concertos as live performances and recordings, followed later by two further recordings of the complete cycle, with Murray Perahia and Mitsuko Uchida.

    This season the Orchestra will perform across the UK and at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall and Cadogan Hall with artists including Christian Zacharias, Ben Johnson, Ben Goldscheider, Jessica Cottis, Behzod Abduraimov and Ana de la Vega. The ECO have recently toured in Mexico with José Serebrier including two concerts at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City and a sold-out tour with Julian Rachlin including performances in Hungary, Slovenia and Austria culminating in a concert at the Musikverein in Vienna. The ECO were also part of the Lucerne Festival in 2018 and closed the Istanbul Music Festival with Güher and Süher Pekinel.
