This album is either the latest example of a classical label prostituting itself in search of a larger audience, or a legitimate attempt at crossover within an orchestral pops vein, given added appeal through the presence of the Roger Dean cover graphics and the near-suppression of the Telarc identification. The "classics" done up in 60-piece orchestral majesty include "Born to Run," "Tears of a Clown," "Superstition," "Hey Joe," "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," "God Only Knows," and "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" (which hardly belongs here, as the product of Scottish songwriter Ewan MacColl)…

The Idyll, The Banks of Green Willow, by George Butterworth, was composed in 1913, the same year Vaughan Williams completed his A London Symphony. It is a sensuous work, which incorporates two folk songs Butterworth had collected in 1907.
London Symphony Orchestra & Gianandrea Noseda - Britten: War Requiem (2012) [Official Digital Download]

London Symphony Orchestra & Gianandrea Noseda - Britten: War Requiem
Classical | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/48 kHz | 83:31 min | 726 MB | Digital booklet
Label: LSO Live | Tracks: 26 | Rls.date: 2012

For his first LSO Live recording, Gianandrea Noseda is joined by three of today s most widely acclaimed singers for a magnificent performance of Benjamin Britten s choral masterpiece. Premiered 50 years ago on 30 May 1962, the 'War Requiem' was commissioned for the re-dedication of Coventry Cathedral, which was destroyed by bombing raids during the Second World War. Using the Latin mass of the dead, interspersed with texts by war poet Wilfred Owen, Britten, a pacifist and conscientious objector, created a work that both mourned the dead and pleaded the futility of war.
Mstislav Rostropovich & London Symphony Orchestra - Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5 (2005) [TR24][OF]

Mstislav Rostropovich & London Symphony Orchestra - Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5
Classical | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/48 kHz | 63:54 min | 449 MB | Digital booklet
Label: LSO Live | Tracks: 04 | Rls.date: 2005

Few works stir up as much debate over their 'meaning' as Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony. And equally few works can boast an interpreter with such insight as Mstislav Rostropovich. His friendship with the composer gives him an almost unique understanding of Shostakovich's inner traumas, and as with the 2002's outstandingly successful LSO Live recording of the Symphony No 11, he inspires the LSO's players to the heights of virtuosity.
London Symphony Orchestra & Sir Colin Davis - Nielsen: Symphonies Nos. 4 & 5 (2011) [TR24][OF]

London Symphony Orchestra & Sir Colin Davis - Nielsen: Symphonies Nos. 4 & 5

Label: LSO Live | Tracks: 07 | Rls.date: 2011

Colin Davis and the London Symphony Orchestra serve up a marvelous pair of recordings on this 2011 SACD that offers Carl Nielsen's Symphony No. 4 ("Inextinguishable") and the Symphony No. 5. Because of Davis' late arrival in conducting these works, some Nielsen devotees might be skeptical about the depth of his interpretations. But anyone familiar with his great recordings of the symphonies of Jean Sibelius will be excited at the prospect of hearing him lead the LSO in Nielsen's most popular symphonies.

This 2008 live recording with the London Symphony Orchestra is Valery Gergiev's 2nd complete recording of Prokofiev's ballet Romeo & Juliet, the 1st being a 1991 Philips release with the Kirov Orchestra. This performance, like his 1st, is notable for its refinement & lyricism. It's perhaps surprising that Gergiev, known for the wildness & ferocity of his performances of other Prokofiev works, like The Fiery Angel, shows such restraint here. Gergiev clearly understands the ballet as a work in which Prokofiev, writing originally for the Bolshoi, a theater known for its conservatism (although that production was canceled), tailored his score to follow in the tradition of the 3 great Tchaikovsky ballets.
London Symphony Orchestra & Sir Simon Rattle - Schumann: Das Paradies und die Peri (2015) [TR24][OF]

London Symphony Orchestra & Sir Simon Rattle - Schumann: Das Paradies und die Peri
Classical | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | 87:50 min | 1.62 GB | Digital booklet
Label: LSO Live | Tracks: 26 | Rls.date: 2015

In his debut recording on LSO Live, Sir Simon Rattle conducts a stunning performance of Schumanns rarely recorded Das Paradies und die Peri featuring a superb line-up of soloists. Rattle is well-known for being a champion of this rarely-heard work, and yet this is the first audio recording he has made of it. Here it is brought to life by the LSO under his baton, and the starry line-up makes the best possible case for Schumanns great oratorio. Sir Simon Rattle says of the piece, Its the great masterpiece youve never heard, and there arent many of those now.

This recording of one of Haydn’s greatest masterpieces is not to be missed. Those who are familiar with Colin Davis’s recordings of the Haydn London Symphonies, made over 30 years ago with the Concertgebouw Orchestra, will know that he has a special affection for this composer’s music and unfailingly communicates his love of it to both performers and listeners alike. Surprisingly this would appear to be the first time that he has recorded Haydn’s Creation, but it has been worth the wait.
