The London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO) is releasing a symphony inspired by Singapore.

As one of the finest orchestras in the world, the LPO performed the symphony jointly with the London Philharmonic Choir and recorded it on LPO’s classical music label.

Titled ‘UTOPIA’ and composed by prolific Russian composer, Vladimir Martynov, it was recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London. Originally planned to be released earlier this year, the drop was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will now be out on 14 November.
