The Göteborgs Symfoniker (Gothenburg Symphony, or Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra) is an orchestra based in Gothenburg, Sweden. Founded in 1905, it was granted the title of 'Swedish National Orchestra' in 1997. GSO have made several tours during the last 10‐15 years — they have performed in London, Vienna, Boston and Shanghai, to name a few places, and have been met with a great response from both critics and audiences.
Although the GSO has a broad repertoire, it has a special affinity for the works of the Nordic Late Romantic composers, such as Jean Sibelius and Edvard Grieg, which has comprised the bulk of its recorded output, as well as Neeme Järvi's specialty, Prokofiev.
The GSO is resident at the Gothenburg Concert Hall, built in 1935 and renowned for its superior acoustic quality.
