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.


Sabina Zweiacker är utbildad vid Musikhögskolan i Malmö och är sedan flera år känd över hela världen för sin medverkan i Orvar Säfströms konsertproduktioner med musik ur filmer och datorspel. Hon gjorde 2014 en av huvudrollerna i Christoffer Nobins barnopera Hion om natten med Norrköpings Symfoniorkester. Hon är lika hemma i film- och spelmusikens fantastiska värld som i de stora repertoarverken som Brahms Ein deutsches Requiem.
