Portrait in bronze depicting the conductor and cellist Tor Mann (1894-1974), chief conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra 1925-1939. During his years as chief conductor, he was among other things involved and inaugurated the Concert Hall in 1935 and made the orchestra’s first record recordings.
Mann cherished the tradition after Wilhelm Stenhammar and made a great impression with Berwald, Sibelius and Nielsen. He was appreciated for his “detail-conscious but holistic interpretations”. After leaving Gothenburg, he became chief conductor of the Radio Symphony Orchestra until 1959. He was also a teacher and later a professor at the Stockholm Academy of Music.
