Christine Pendrill

Christine Pendrill is the principal cor anglais player of the London Symphony Orchestra, a position she has held since 1986. She began her professional career while still a student at the Royal College of Music, when she began to freelance with the New Philharmonia Orchestra. After several years working with all the major London orchestras, she joined the Philharmonia as principal cor anglais in 1980. In her career as an orchestral player, she has toured extensively in Europe, the United States, the Far East and Australia, as well as in Britain. She has recorded most of the famous symphonic cor anglais solos, including several recordings of Sibelius’s Swan of Tuonela, as well as Copland’s Quiet City with Maurice Murphy and the London Symphony Orchestra. She can also be heard on many film soundtracks, notably The English Patient. As a member of the London Symphony Orchestra, she was the first woman to be elected to the orchestra’s Board of Directors, a rôle she fulfilled for three years. In 1996 she gave the world première of The World’s Ransoming, a concertante work for cor anglais written for her and the orchestra by James MacMillan, which she subsequently recorded. She plays on a Howarth S2 cor anglais made in 1969.
