Sinfonia Lahti - Lahti Symphony Orchestra

Sinfonia Lahti - Lahti Symphony Orchestra

The Lahti Symphony Orchestra has been described as a ‘small-town wonder’. Its collaboration with the Swedish record company BIS was the first clear signal that its aspirations were no longer those of a provincial ensemble but were oriented towards the wider orchestral world, and the orchestra fulfilled many of its wildest dreams together with its principal conductor Osmo Vänskä (1988– 2008). Since the autumn of 2008 until the spring of 2011 the orchestra’s artistic advisor – and artistic director of the Sibelius Festival – was Jukka-Pekka Saraste. Since the autumn of 2011 until the spring of 2016 Okko Kamu was the orchestra’s principal conductor and the artistic director of the Festival, and in the autumn of 2016 Dima Slobodeniouk began his tenure in these positions.

The innovative spirit of the Lahti Symphony Orchestra is reflected in the numerous exceptional recording projects which it has undertaken. Almost without exception, all of the more than 80 recordings which the orchestra has made mainly for BIS Records (more than one million cds sold worldwide) have garnered praise from the international press. Since winning several awards for its recordings (including a Grand Prix du Disque in 1993, Gramophone Awards in 1991 and 1996, the Cannes Classical Award in 1997 and 2001, MIDEM Classical Award 2006, Diapason d'Or de l'Année 2011 and BBC Music Magazine Award 2018), the orchestra has been a welcome guest at major international venues. The orchestra has had tours in e.g. South America, France, Japan, China and the USA and in addition it has performed at the Philharmonie in Berlin, at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, at the Musikverein in Vienna and at numerous music festivals, including the White Nights Festival in St. Petersburg and the BBC Proms in London.
