In 1939 the orchestra's sponsors withdrew their financial support and the orchestra became self-governing, with members of the orchestra themselves taking decisions on the organisation's affairs. During the Second World War it was particularly active in touring the country and bringing orchestral music to places where it was not usually available. Many of the players' instruments were lost in an air-raid on the Queen's Hall in May 1941, and an appeal was broadcast by the BBC, the response to which was enormous, with instruments donated by the public enabling the orchestra to continue.[5] Year 1939 (MCMXXXIX) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

After a period with no principal conductor the orchestra engaged the Dutch conductor, Eduard van Beinum in 1947. Foreign nationals, at that time, were allowed to work in Britain for only six months of the year; in his absences van Beinum’s place was taken by a roster of conductors including Jean Martinon. Van Beinum’s health obliged him to resign and he was succeeded by Sir Adrian Boult, who had retired from a similar position with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the BBC’s then compulsory retiring age of 60 in 1950.[8] Eduard van Beinum (September 1, 1901, Arnhem - April 13, 1959, Amsterdam) was a Dutch conductor. ...

The orchestra underwent a crisis between 1949 and 1952 because its managing director, Thomas Russell, who had been the leading force in keeping the orchestra going during the war years, came under pressure in the cold war years because of his communist beliefs. The London County Council withdrew its understanding that the LPO would be the resident orchestra at the new Royal Festival Hall, and eventually the orchestra voted to dismiss Russell.[9] For other uses, see Cold War (disambiguation). ...

Boult retired as principal conductor after heading the LPO’s tour of Russia in 1956. He remained closely associated with the orchestra, and was made its President in 1965. Most of his stereophonic recordings for EMI were made with the LPO.[10]

Through the late 1950s the LPO worked with conductors including Constantin Silvestri and Josef Krips. This was a bad period financially for the orchestra, and it was forced to abandon fixed contracts for its players with holiday and sick pay and pensions, and revert to payment by engagement.[11] Constantin Silvestri (May 13, 1913 – February 23, 1969) was a Romanian conductor. ...

During this period the orchestra gave fund raising concerts in which guests from outside the world of classical music appeared, including Danny Kaye and Duke Ellington. Others to appear with the LPO included Tony Bennett, Victor Borge, Jack Benny and John Dankworth.[15] Kaye entertaining U.S. troops at Sasebo, Japan, 25 Oct 1945 David Daniel Kaminsky, known as Danny Kaye (January 18, 1913 – March 3, 1987) was an American actor, singer and comedian. ...
