« My fantasy orchestra, on the basis of last night’s Symphony no. 5 in B flat major by Bruckner, would include the brass section of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. »

The blue concert hall at Hötorget (the Haymarket) in central Stockholm is one of Sweden’s great architectural masterpieces. Opened in 1926, it was designed by architect Ivar Tengbom during a period of expansion in the capital. The Stockholm Concert Hall was built to house The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra – founded in 1902 – and to serve as an arena for the Nobel Prize Ceremony. Besides the main hall, the building also contains two chamber music halls: the beautiful Grünewald Hall and the smaller Aulin Hall. The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s chief conductor Sakari Oramo was appointed in 2008, with his present contract lasting until 2020.
