Both agreements will begin in 2020, initially for a five year term.
Douglas Boyd, artistic director of Garsington, said: ‘I am delighted that, as we enter the next 30 years of our festival, we will have two of the best orchestras in the world playing in our opera house in Wormsley.
‘We offer a warm welcome to all our colleagues at the English Concert as they join the Philharmonic as part of the Garsington family and we look forward to making music together at the very highest standard.’
