Scandinavium Symphonia with Tomas Ledin

Tomas Ledin, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and Peter Nordahl in a unique concert experience in Scandinavium on August 19!

Concert length: 2 h 15 min incl. intermission
545-965 SEK

Symphonia is a new side of Tomas Ledin. 15 of his beloved songs interpreted by the arranger and conductor Peter Nordahl are performed by Tomas Ledin and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Symphonia means “in unison” and that is exactly what this unique concert wants to provide – a curious encounter across musical boundaries.

With a 50-year career, Tomas Ledin is one of Sweden’s most loved artists and has created songs that are forever etched in the musical memory of most of the Swedish population. Peter Nordahl has a long list of cross-border collaborations among his credits. Together, they have chosen a repertoire consisting of both more obvious and less well-known songs.

“Peter called one day and asked if I wanted to give my songs a new context,” says Tomas. “Could we together rediscover En del av mitt hjärta, Just Nu, En midsommarnattsdröm and other songs in new musical landscapes? It was a no-brainer, of course I wanted it!”

The project Symphonia started together with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, which performed the music in Stockholm’s Concert Hall in November 2022 together with Tomas Ledin and Peter Nordahl. The music is also available on album.

On August 19, we will hear the result – let the music soar you over undiscovered landscapes!

The concert is organized in collaboration with Live Nation.

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.
