Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony in Stockholm, see the video!

The above link guides you to the recording made in April 2017 in the Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra concert, where Storgårds conducted Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony.





John Storgårds’ latest recording of Brett Dean Dramatis Personae and Luca Francesconi Hard Pace with Håkan Hardenberger and Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra has been selected as ‘Editor’s Choice’ in the August 2017 issue of the Gramophone magazine. In the review, Andrew Mellor commented, “With Storgårds and the GSO, it’s a dream team.”

John Storgårds in Concert

14. December 2017, Royal Concert Halls Glasgow
Royal Scottish National Orchestra


Clear of beat, articulate of gesture, strong and vigorous of command, Storgards on the podium exuded the confidence of a thoughtful musician who knows exactly what he wants and how to trigger responses in orchestral musicians that speak excitingly to the audience. His conducting is all about the music, not his ego. Management would be seriously remiss in not inviting Storgards back.
