Gavle Symphony Orchestra

The Gävle Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest in Sweden, dating back to 1912. The first artistic director of this 25-man orchestra was the composer Ruben Liljefors but now numbers 52 full-time members. The orchestra is based in the provincial capital of Gävle, but tours regularly both in its home province and elsewhere in Sweden. The Gävle Symphony Orchestra has also toured in The Netherlands, Finland, Norway and the former Yugoslavia. There was a unique collaboration with the symphony orchestra in Dubrovnik during the 1990s when the two orchestras performed Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem in support of the suffering people in war-torn Croatia. Since its inception the Gävle Symphony Orchestra has had a succession of distinguished conductors as artistic directors including Stig Westerberg, Rainer Miedel, Göran W Nilson, Hannu Koivula, Carlos Spierer, Petri Sakari and Robin Ticciati. The Gävle Concert Hall was dedicated in January 1998, marking the completion of a project first proposed in the 1930s. The custom-built hall has allowed the orchestra to record more in-house CDs than were possible previously. In addition to the music of Franz Berwald, the orchestra has recorded works by composers such as Bo Linde, Wilhelm Stenhammar, Hugo Alfvén, Edvard Grieg, Dmitry Shostakovich, Carl Nielsen and Sven-David Sandström.
