Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra

The Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra (FRSO) is the orchestra of the Finnish Broadcasting Company (Yle). Its mission is to produce and promote Finnish musical culture. The Chief Conductor as of autumn 2013 is Hannu Lintu.

The Radio Orchestra founded in 1927 grew to symphony orchestra strength in the 1960s. Its previous Chief Conductors have been Toivo Haapanen, Nils-Eric Fougstedt, Paavo Berglund, Okko Kamu, Leif Segerstam, Jukka-Pekka Saraste and Sakari Oramo.

The latest contemporary music is a major item in the repertoire of the FRSO, which each year premieres a number of Yle commissions. Another of the Orchestra's tasks is to record all Finnish orchestral music for the Yle archive. During the 2017/2018 season it will premiere six Finnish works commissioned by Yle.

The FRSO has recorded works by Ligeti, Eötvös, Nielsen, Hakola, Lindberg, Saariaho, Salonen, Sallinen, Kaipainen, Kokkonen and others. Its discs have reaped some major distinctions, such as the BBC Music Magazine Award and the Académie Charles Cros Award and the MIDEM Classical Award. The disc of the Ligeti violin concerto was the Editor's Choice in the Gramophone Magazine in February 2014.

All the FRSO concerts both in Finland and abroad are broadcast, usually live, on Yle Radio 1. They can also be heard and watched with excellent live stream quality on yle.fi/areena.
