Swedish Philharmonia

Swedish Philharmonia (also performing as the Gävle Symphony Orchestra), founded in 1912, has a long and exciting history, but the focus is always on the future. Each concert presents an opportunity to deliver the very best, and to meet the expectations from the audience for an artistic experience at the highest level.

Swedish Philharmonia has since its inception played an obvious and significant role in the Swedish music scene and its 52 musicians are driven by an undeniable and heartfelt passion for music. The orchestra takes on a repertoire ranging from the baroque to the latest contemporary music with equal curiosity and dedication. It is of particular note that the orchestra's initiatives with composers-in-residence have provided a vivid image of the outside world. Through a series of acclaimed CD recordings, the Swedish Philharmonia has also brought many older Swedish composers into the limelight and given them well-deserved recognition.

Since 2013, the Swedish Philharmonia has enjoyed a fruitful musical partnership with principal conductor Jaime Martín, but the orchestra has also collaborated regularly with renowned international artists such as Leif Segerstam, Sir Neville Marriner, Viktoria Mullova, Anne Sofie von Otter, Isabelle van Keulen, François Leleux, Gabriela Montero, Christian Zacharias, Deniz Kozhukhin, Gérard Korsten, Thomas Zehetmair, Nemanja Radulovic and many others.
During Jaime Martín's tenure as principal conductor, the Swedish Philharmonia have released several highly acclaimed CD's and have toured in South Korea, China and the Netherlands.
