40 YEARS OF MUSIC: DISCO ’79
Master arranger and conductor Hans Ek is no stranger to dance music. With the power of the orchestra, he has interpreted the pioneers Kraftwerk, injected Stravinsky into Swedish House Mafia and now it is disco’s turn. The 40th anniversary of Berwaldhallen opens with glitter and sequins, platform shoes and glamour, as the most classic seventies disco hits move from the dance floor to the concert hall.
The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra serves as a symphony orchestra for the whole of Sweden. Regardless of where you live you can listen to the orchestra’s concerts through the Swedish Radio’s broadcasts or on their website, and several concerts are also shown on Swedish Television. The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra is one of the best and most versatile orchestras in Europe – perhaps even in the world. Every year they perform well-loved works from the classical repertoire as well as new music by exciting contemporary composers such as Victoria Borisova-Ollas, Magnus Lindberg and Unsuk Chin. In addition they perform music from popular films and computer and video games and collaborate with leading jazz, pop and rock artists in a constant endeavour to develop and to break new ground.
