Gothenburg Symphony



Founded in 1905, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra (Göteborgs Symfoniker) currently numbers 109 players. Chief conductor is Santtu-Matias Rouvali who took up the post in 2017. Rouvali and the orchestra have already made an impression both on local audiences and in Nordic capitals during a tour in 2018. The great Swedish composer Wilhelm Stenhammar was appointed principal conductor in 1907 and subsequent holders of the post include Sergiu Comissiona, Sixten Ehrling and Charles Dutoit. During Neeme Järvi’s tenure (1982–2004), the orchestra became a major international force; it has toured in the USA, Japan and the Far East, and in 1997 was appointed National Orchestra of Sweden. Gustavo Dudamel (music director 2007–12) took the orchestra to major music centres and festivals, including the BBC Proms and Vienna Musikverein. Since 2013 Kent Nagano has been principal guest conductor, making tours with the orchestra in China and Germany. The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra is a company owned by the Region Västra Götaland.
