We've collated some of our favourite quotes and images for you but you can read all of the reviews and articles in full by clicking on the following links: The Observer, Financial Times, The GuardianThe TimesThe New York TimesEvening Standard, BachtrackThe Telegraph

And don't forget to listen back to the live broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

We owe the London Sinfonietta more than we shall ever know " The Observer
An outstanding birthday celebration with bells and whistles " The Guardian
The Sinfonietta remains what it was then: a fabulously adventurous ensemble of virtuoso instrumentalists. No wonder Birtwistle brought the house down when he told the players: 'Happy birthday; keep practising' " The Times
It may have turned 50 but the Sinfonietta is buzzing with life " Evening Standard
Conducted with precision by David Atherton " Bachtrack
An exquisitely suggestive work, and meticulously served here under Vladimir Jurowski’s baton " Financial Times (on Samantha Fernando's Formations)
