Sir Charles Groves
Charles Groves has been a great champion of British music as well as a particularly diligent and often inspired interpreter of the mainstream classical repertoire. For over 25 years, Sir Charles regularly appeared with the RPO both in London and abroad, as well as working with the Orchestra in the recording studio. He was also interested in the training of young musicians and did an enormous amount behind the scenes to foster music generally in the UK. He was awarded a CBE in 1968 and was knighted in 1973.
