The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra is a multiple-award-winning ensemble renowned for its high artistic standard and stylistic breadth, as well as collaborations with the world’s finest composers, conductors, and soloists. It regularly tours all over Europe and the world and has an extensive and acclaimed recording catalogue.

Daniel Harding has been Music Director of the SRSO since 2007, and since 2019 also its Artistic Director. His tenure will last throughout the 2024/2025 season. Two of the orchestra’s former chief conductors, Herbert Blomstedt and Esa-Pekka Salonen, have since been named Conductors Laureate, and continue to perform regularly with the orchestra.

The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra performs at Berwaldhallen, concert hall of the Swedish Radio, and is a cornerstone of Swedish public service broadcasting. Its concerts are heard weekly on the Swedish classical radio P2 and regularly on national public television SVT. Several concerts are also streamed on-demand on Berwaldhallen Play and broadcast globally through the EBU.


32 professional choristers make up the Swedish Radio Choir: a unique, dynamic instrument hailed by music-lovers and critics all over the world. The Swedish Radio Choir performs at Berwaldhallen, concert hall of the Swedish Radio, as well as on tours all over the country and the world. Also, they are heard regularly by millions of listeners on Swedish Radio P2, Berwaldhallen Play and globally through the EBU.

The award-winning Latvian conductor Kaspars Putniņš was appointed Chief Conductor of the Swedish Radio Choir in 2020. Since January 2019, its choirmaster is French orchestral and choral conductor Marc Korovitch, with responsibility for the choir’s vocal development.

The Swedish Radio Choir was founded in 1925, the same year as Sweden’s inaugural radio broadcasts, and gave its first concert in May that year. Multiple acclaimed and award-winning albums can be found in the choir’s record catalogue. Late 2023 saw the release of Kaspars Putniņš first album with the choir: Robert Schumann’s Missa sacra, recorded with organist Johan Hammarström.

Tobias Ringborg is equally appreciated in opera houses and concert halls – as a conductor, soloist and chamber musician. Winning the prestigious Swedish Soloist Prize in 1994 launched his career – the same year, he graduated with diploma from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, afterwards continuing his studies at the Juilliard School in New York City.

As a violinist, he has performed with all the major Swedish symphony and chamber orchestras and has worked with conductors including Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Neeme Järvi, Okko Kamu, Sakari Oramo and Daniel Harding. His international merits include performances with orchestras all over Europe and the United States, and first prize in Concours International de Musique de Chimay in Belgium.

Ringborg started his conducting career when he won an international conducting competition in Helsinki in 2000, and has since appeared with most Scandinavian orchestras, often in dual roles as both conductor and solo violinist. He has a life-long passion for opera, debuting as opera conductor at Folkoperan in Stockholm in 2001, appearing later that same year at the Royal Swedish Opera, being hired by the Malmö Opera the following year.

He is a potent ambassador for Swedish music, having recorded numerous albums with chamber music and violin concertos by primarily Swedish composers. He plays on a Gagliano generously loaned by the Järnåker Foundation. Tobias Ringborg has received the Herbert Blomstedt Conductor’s Award and is a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music.

Malin Broman is the first concertmaster of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra since 2008. She served as artistic director of Musica Vitae in 2015–2020, premiering over 20 works and touring and recording extensively. In 2019, she succeeded Sakari Oramo as artistic director of the Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra.

As a guest leader, she has been invited to perform with ensembles such as the London Symphony Orchestra, Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra. As combined soloist and leader she has performed with the Tapiola Sinfonietta, Nordic Chamber Orchestra, Trondheim Soloists and ACO Collective. Soloist highlights include performances with the Gothenburg Symphony, Copenhagen Phil, BBC Scottish Symphony, Academy of St Martin-in-the Fields, and the Swedish Radio Orchestra, working with such conductors as Neeme Järvi, Andrew Manze and Daniel Harding.

In recent years, she has premiered concertos by Daniel Börtz, Britta Byström, Andrea Tarrodi and Daniel Nelson. She has recorded over 30 albums, including concertos by Carl Nielsen and Britta Byström. Recent releases include an album with music by Laura Netzel, and Stockholm Diary with the Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra. Her recording of Mendelssohn’s double concerto together with pianist Simon Crawford-Phillips and Musica Vitae was Grammy nominated in 2019.

She received much acclaim for her recording of Felix Mendelssohn’s string octet in the spring of 2020, where she played all eight parts herself. She has since made two similar recordings: Britta Byström’s octet A Room of One’s Own, and Johan Halvorsens Passacaglia recorded with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra’s solo contrabassist Rick Stotijn.

In 2001, she founded the Change Music Festival in Kungsbacka. She is also co-founder of Kungsbacka Piano Trio, with which she had played more than 700 concerts all ove the world, and of Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble which is made up of some of Europe’s most brilliant chamber musicians.

In 2008, Malin was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music. The Kungsbacka Piano Trio has received the prestigious Interpret Prize of the Royal Academy of Music. In 2019, she was awarded H.M. The King’s Medal. She is currently Professor of Viola at Edsberg Institute of Music in Stockholm. She plays a 1709 Stradivarius violin and a 1861 Bajoni viola, both generously loaned by the Järnåker Foundation.

Daniel Johansson is a tenor from Braås in the province of Småland, who went from hard rock to opera and was likened to a young Pavarotti by Frankfurter Allgemeine for his interpretation of Rodolfo in Puccini’s La bohème. In 2018, he will be performing at the Royal Swedish Opera in both Puccini’s Tosca and Umberto Giordano’s Fedora, as well as in Carmen at Semperoper Dresden. He has played Melot in Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Daniel Harding, as well as with Orchestre de Paris and Christoph Eschenbach.
