Leif Ove Andsnes, one of the world’s foremost pianists, will tackle Mozart’s brilliant concerto with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.

Mozart’s subscription concerts in Vienna, in which he was the piano soloist, were a great triumph. The successes inspired him to compose several piano concertos and the twenty-second in E-flat major became something of a high-light among these fine works.

Leif Ove Andsnes is the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra’s Artist in Residence and one of the world’s foremost pianists. Here, he will tackle Mozart’s phenomenal concerto, a piece which took audiences by storm in the 1780s – and which continues to do so today.

We will also be treated to a great romantic work, Bruckner’s Symphony No 9. This magnificent and grandiose piece is composed by one of the romantic era’s most prominent figures. Bruckner was still working on the final movement of the symphony on the day he died, and it was left incomplete. The young Finnish phenomenon Klaus Mäkelä will be conducting the orchestra.

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.
