Enclosed in a bubble, you have many friends, but you can also be afraid of other bubbles that slowly move closer. A poetic, surprising and funny symphonic saga with the Gothenburg Symphony where we get to know the orchestra and the instruments. Emilia Hoving is conducting, Tormod Tvete Vik writes the music and Mats Kjelbye writes the words.

Presenter is Yankho Kamwendo, actor, musician and known from Barnkanalen.

Emilia Hoving has quickly made an international career and is one of the most exciting young Finnish conductors today. She has appeared with orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic in Stockholm, the Luxembourg Philharmonic and the Iceland Symphony as well as with the Helsinki Philharmonic and the Orchester Philharmonique de Radio France. Now she makes her debut with the Gothenburg Symphony.

The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1905 and currently consists of 109 musicians. The orchestra is based in Gothenburg Concert Hall – a gem of functionalism on Götaplatsen square that has enchanted music lovers since 1935. Wilhelm Stenhammar was the orchestra’s Chief Conductor from 1907 until 1922. He gave the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra a strong Nordic profile and invited his colleagues Carl Nielsen and Jean Sibelius to collaborate with the orchestra. Under the leadership of Chief Conductor Neeme Järvi between 1982 and 2004, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra undertook a number of international tours and made a hundred or so album recordings while establishing itself as one of Europe’s foremost orchestras. In 1997 the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra received the title of the National Orchestra of Sweden. Since season 2017-2018 Santtu-Matias Rouvali is Chief Conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Since season 2019-2020 Barbara Hannigan is Principal Guest Conductor. Christoph Eschenbach was also Principal Guest Conductor of Gothenburg Symphony in the years 2019-2022 – together they formed a strong three-leaf clover consisting of three completely different types of artists. We are also extremely proud to be an official partner of soprano Barbara Hannigan’s mentor initiative Equilibrium, with focus on young singers and musicians who are just beginning their careers. Sten Cranner is the orchestra’s CEO and Artistic Director, while Gustavo Dudamel holds the title of Honorary Conductor and Neeme Järvi that of Principal Conductor Emeritus. Region Västra Götaland is owner of the orchestra. The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra works regularly with conductors such as Herbert Blomstedt, Joana Carneiro, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, Christian Zacharias and Anja Bihlmaier.

Winner of the Finnish Critics' Spurs prize 2021, Emilia Hoving (born 1994) has emerged as one of most exciting young Finnish conductors of today. She has appeared internationally with orchestras such as the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Luxembourg Philharmonic and Iceland Symphony as well as with the Helsinki Philharmonic and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. In Summer 2022 she made her Tokyo debut and her UK debut conducting the Philharmonia at the Three Choirs Festival - at which she gave the UK premiere of a work by Rolf Martinsson. She was immediately invited back by the Philharmonia for a series of concerts in 2024. Emilia Hoving has conducted many works by living (particularly Finnish) composers, and also gave the world premiere of a new piano concerto (played by Alexandre Tharaud) with the Orchestre National de Lille by their Resident Composer, Alex Nante. Emilia Hoving studied at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. She will make her debut with the Gothenburg Symphony in 2023/2024.
