THE CONCERT HAS BEEN CANCELED - MUSICAL STORYTELLING: THE ETERNAL STRANGER
Ludwig van Beethoven is portrayed in a different and thought-provoking way by Israeli composer Ella Milch-Sheriff: her monodrama The Eternal Stranger is based on a strange and suggestive dream described by Beethoven himself and portrays Beethoven in an altogether new and unexpected fashion. Do not miss this unique tribute to the legendary composer, premiered by conductor and pianist Omer Meir Wellber, who also presents Bach’s The Art of Fugue in new and exciting arrangements by Sven-David Sandström among others.

Permanent home of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra since 1979 is Berwaldhallen, the Swedish Radio’s concert hall. In addition to the audience in the hall, the orchestra reaches many many listeners on the radio and the web and through it´s partnership with EBU. Several concerts are also broadcast and streamed on Berwaldhallen Play and with Swedish Television, offering the audience more opportunities to come as close as possible to one of the world’s top orchestras.
“The orchestra has a unique combination of humility, sensibility and musical imagination”, says Daniel Harding, Music Director of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra since 2007. “I have never had a concert with the orchestra where they haven’t played as though their lives depended on it!”
The first radio orchestra was founded in 1925, the same year that the Swedish Radio Service began its broadcasts. The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra received its current name in 1967. Through the years, the orchestra has had several distinguished Music Directors. Two of them, Herbert Blomstedt and Esa-Pekka Salonen, have since been appointed Conductors Laureate.
