He was subsequently appointed solo principal cellist of the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

In 1980 Ross Pople took up the helm of London Festival Orchestra and toured Germany. He quickly made LFO a household name through his summer festival titled Cathedral Classics, often directing from the cello. He has taken the LFO on tour throughout Europe, the Americas and the Far East. Also associated with Pople's name is the Southbank series Birthday Honours, the Hochhauser series at the Barbican, the annual Remembrance Sunday Concert at the Royal Albert Hall, the festival Dutch Cornucopia and the Virtuoso Piano series at Cadogan Hall.
