Here we go again – The latest installments of the intrepid, international travels of the RLPO! The oldest professional symphony orchestra in the British Isles – celebrating 175 years of first class music making this year.
Our welcome in Bucharest.
The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is enjoying a healthy amount of international touring these days. During the last year we have travelled to China, Japan, Czech Republic and as of yesterday evening, Bucharest in Romania.
The famous old beer hall in Bucharest – Caru ce bere.

The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is going on it’s travels once more. This time we are revisiting Romania again. We last toured to Bucharest in 2011 to participate in the prestigious Enescu Festival. As last time, we will be following the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra; an august ensemble who are almost as old as the RLPO!
Last time, the visit to Bucharest coincided with our tour to Prague. However, we have already visited the Czech Republic this year so we doing a quick commando raid to Bucharest alone, for four days.
We set off at six in the morning and, if last time is anything to go by, it should be a wonderful trip. I’m not sure I can get my head around trying Carpathian Bear on the menu but the temperature is about 37 degrees.
Just to wet regular readers’ appetites and to instigate the tour blog, I thought I would post the blogs from the last trip so you can get a flavour of what is in store…
Wish us luck!
