“One of the finest acoustics in Europe”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

To hear the wonderful Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra here is a great experience: the acoustic is near perfect. The hall is entirely lined with light-coloured wood and so is easy on the eys as it is on the ears. If the orchestra is playing, don't miss a chance to visit!

“World class in small town”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

This orchestra is regularly rated among the best in Europe and it deserves to so be. Ever since Volvo started to sponsor it (many years back) it has climbed i quality. It is strange that such a small town with half a million people can enjoy classical music at the level performed here and that it is sustainable. They have managed o recruit great conductors, very good management which probably made it endure in quality. Unfortunately the orchestra lost the fantastic capacity they had in the young venezuelan maestro Gustavo Dudamel who was there for many years, but they have kept up despite loosing him to LA.

Nuff said! The orchestra is absolutely amazing. You have to experience it to believe it!
