The Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Örebro

“...there’s abundant life, quick-witted musical intelligence, inwardly charged expression, scintillating precision, humour and a sense of awe...” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE February 2001

The Swedish Chamber Orchestra Örebro, based in the city of Örebro, is Scandinavia’s only fulltime chamber orchestra. The Örebro Concert Hall, situated on the Black River in the historic centre of Örebro, is the orchestra’s home. From this base it gives some 100 performances a year divided between subscription concerts and tours - national and international. Thomas Dausgaard is the Principal Conductor of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra since 1997.
The Swedish Chamber Orchestras rapid development, attracting attention from leading international conductors and soloists, has come as the result of intensive recording (Naxos, Simax, BIS and Hyperion) and increasingly touring. Most ambitious is the work in progress recording the complete Beethoven orchestral works and piano concerti with Boris Berezovsky, soloist and Thomas Dausgaard, conductor. 5 CD’s, on the Simax label, have so far been released to international critical acclaim.

In 1996 the Swedish Chamber Orchestra toured Europe with Barbara Hendricks and the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir, in 1997 Spain and Norway, in 1998 Germany, Norway and the USA, in 2001 Germany and in 2003 two more German tours including the Schleswig-Holstein Festival. 2004 marks the orchestras debut at the London Proms and the New York “Mostly Mozart” festival.
Together with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra a composer-in-residency for a Swedish (Karin Rehnqvist) and a British (Sally Beamish) composer was established for the period 1998-2004.
