In 1912, the LSO embarked upon their most ambitious project yet - the very first tour by a British orchestra to the United States of America. Narrowly avoiding sailing on the Titanic, the tour eventually ended up going down in LSO folklore.
100 years later, Principal Flute Gareth Davies explores the tour whilst on tour in New York with the 2012 LSO, through extracts from a diary bequeathed to the LSO by 1912 Principal Timpani Charles Turner.
What are the similarities and differences between the LSO of 1912 and 2012? Watch to find out!
