Sweden's Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra To Perform At MayoPAC
originally published: 01/23/2018
(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, Sweden’s most distinguished symphony, performs at Mayo Performing Arts Center on Thursday, February 15 at 7:30pm. The Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra (HSO) was founded in 1912 and is one of Sweden’s oldest orchestras. Tickets range from $39-$69.
The Orchestra's principal conductors have included Sten Frykberg, John Frandsen, Okko Kamu, and Andrew Manze, with whom it has recorded symphonies by Beethoven and Brahms. The HSO is undoubtedly one of the region’s key international leaders and is much sought-after for both concert tours and recording projects.
In addition to regular guest appearances on major Scandinavian stages (such as Berwaldhallen and Konserthuset in Stockholm), the HSO has had many successes at prominent European venues (such as three sold-out recent concerts at the Great Festival Hall in Salzburg and in Vienna). The HSO’s extensive discography has also received rave response and reviews, especially its recordings of the music of Mieczyslaw Weinberg and the complete orchestral works of Lars-Erik Larsson.
Since September 2014, the HSO’s principal conductor is Swedish-born Stefan Solyom, who is currently also the General Music Director of the Deutsches Nationaltheater and Staatskapelle Weimar. Maestro Solyom has appeared on a regular basis with the HSO since 1998, when he was nineteen years old, and has a highly developed and intimate relationship with the orchestra, based on the kind of mutual familiarity and understanding that comes with years of frequent, intense collaboration
