StockholmBeethoven - Symphony no. 3

Beethoven: Symphony no. 3 in E flat major "Eroica", Op.55
Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra; John Storgårds
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
