Meet the new star conductor Ruth Reinhardt! She leads the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra in Brahms’ Variations on a Theme by Haydn, his first major symphonic success full of magnificent and harmonically exciting orchestral splendour. The programme also includes Paul Hindemith’s melodic and moving Nobilissima visione, as well as Bohuslav Martinů’s suggestive and bustling Toccata e due canzoni.

The German conductor Ruth Reinhardt studied violin and conducting in Germany and Switzerland before she moved to the USA and undertook more in-depth studies at the renowned Juilliard School of Music in New York with Alan Gilbert, formerly chief conductor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. She is now one of the most interesting young conductors on the international classical music scene.

Participants

The Gothenburg Symphony, called "one of the world's most formidable orchestras" by the Guardian, has toured the USA, Europe, Japan and the Far East and performed at major music centres and festivals throughout the world. Chief conductor is Santtu-Matias Rouvali who started his tenure in 2017. Barbara Hannigan and Christoph Eschenbach are principal guest conductors since 2019. Already at the orchestra's very first years, the great Swedish composer Wilhelm Stenhammar was appointed principal conductor, contributing strongly to the Nordic profile of the orchestra by inviting his colleagues Carl Nielsen and Jean Sibelius to conduct their own works. Subsequent holders of the post include Sergiu Comissiona, Sixten Ehrling and Charles Dutoit. During Neeme Järvi's tenure (1982-2004), the orchestra became a major international force. In 1997 it was appointed the National Orchestra of Sweden. During his celebrated tenure as music director (2007-2012), Gustavo Dudamel took the Orchestra to major music centres and festivals in Europe, making acclaimed appearances at BBC Proms and Vienna Musikverein. The list of prominent guest conductors has included Wilhelm Furtwängler, Pierre Monteux, Herbert von Karajan, Myung-Whun Chung, Herbert Blomstedt and Sir Simon Rattle. The orchestra also runs extensive concert projects for children, and regularly releases digital live concerts free on gsoplay.se. The orchestra has been involved in many prestigious recording projects, the latest one the complete Sibelius Symphonies with Santtu-Matias Rouvali for Alpha Classics. Earlier, the orchestra has issued over 100 recordings on BIS, Deutsche Grammophon, Chandos, Farao Classics and several other labels. The Gothenburg Symphony is owned by the Region Västra Götaland.
