Notable_instruments = The Göteborgs Symfoniker (Gothenburg Symphony, or Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra) is an
orchestrabased in Gothenburg, Sweden. Founded in 1905, it was granted the title of "Swedish National Orchestra" in 1997. GSO have made several tours during the last 10-15 years - they have performed in London, Vienna, Boston and Shanghai, to name a few places, and have been met with a great response from both critics and audiences.
Although the GSO has a broad repertoire, it has a special affinity for the works of the Nordic Late Romantic composers, such as
Jean Sibeliusand Edvard Grieg, which has comprised the bulk of its recorded output, as well as Neeme Järvi's specialty, Prokofiev. During Järvi's 22 years as principal conductor, the orchestra's longest, its reputation on the world stage was greatly increased, including sponsorships from Volvoand a recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon.
The GSO is resident at the
Gothenburg Concert Hall, built in 1935 and renowned for its superior acoustic quality.
