The Gävle Symphony Orchestra is one of the oldest in Sweden, and celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012. The conductor and composer Ruben Liljefors was the orchestra’s first artistic director, with 25 musicians at his disposal. Over the years, the orchestra has grown to 52 full-time members. Based chiefly at the Gävle Concert Hall, the orchestra tours regularly, both in its home province and elsewhere in Sweden, Scandinavia and the rest of Europe. Since its inception, the Gävle Symphony Orchestra has had a succession of distinguished principal conductors, including Stig Westerberg, Rainer Miedel, Göran W. Nilson, Hannu Koivula, Carlos Spierer, Petri Sakari and Robin Ticciati. The Spanish conductor Jaime Martín has been the orchestra’s principal conductor and artistic leader since 2013. Since 1998 the orchestra’s home has been the Gävle Concert Hall, regarded as one of Sweden’s best, where the excellent acoustics are preferred by the orchestra, guest artists and ensembles making recordings. The orchestra’s discography lists recordings of works by composers Bo Linde, Wilhelm Stenhammar, Franz Berwald, Hugo Alfvén, Edvard Grieg, Dmitry Shostakovich, Carl Nielsen and Sven-David Sandström.
