Poll: Which UK orchestra plays best for dance?

23 June 2000

There are some polls that seem more important than others... and therfore more open to interested parties trying to turn 'their vote' out!

Earlier in the poll the running order was BRB, Rambert, NBT and RB - which is a trifle different to the result we see now. Of course there is no wrong or right and none of it is rigorous anyway...

However, personally I'm glad BRB did well, and London Musici too. Given the resources and cost the ROH orchestra should have won by a mile of course. That they win prizes for their opera playing and yet are thought less than the best in playing for dance should perhaps be a cause of some concern to the new music and artistic directors.
