Symphony No 2Add to calendar
It was premiered on 22 April that same year with the composer conducting the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Later, Stenhammar wrote: “My symphony score was completed six days before the premiere and at the end of the finale I rehearsed for the first and only time on the day of the concert. On the whole, I am happy with the symphony, so happy that I am already starting to long for the next one.” And he had reason to be happy: it’s one of the great Nordic symphonies of its time.
