Guide to the Gävle Symphony Orchestra

"The roster of luminaries who have stopped off in Gävle is distinguished in any context. Nolčeva believes that the unique sound and close relationships forged by the orchestra have made it a desirable stopping point for everyone, from Martha Argerich to Esa-Pekka Salonen."

Founded in 1912, the Gävle Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest in Sweden. Besides the performances in Gävle and the region, the orchestra regularly tours in Sweden, Europe and has also toured Asia, with concerts at the Seoul Arts Centre and Shanghai Symphony Hall. The orchestra’s home is the Gävle Concert Hall, opened in 1998, which is regarded as one of the finest in Sweden.
