Lapland Chamber Orchestra
Langue disponible : anglaisHeadquartered in the Finnish city of Rovaniemi, nearly on the Arctic Circle, the Chamber Orchestra of Lapland (or Lapland Chamber Orchestra -- both translations from the Finnish Lapin kamariorkesteri have been used) is the northernmost professional orchestra in the European Union. The ensemble has championed Finnish music and also contemporary music more generally, often giving the Finnish premieres of new music. The orchestra performs in Rovaniemi in its own new auditorium in the Korundi Culture House, tours Lapland and the rest of Scandinavia's Arctic region, and Finland. They have also appeared in Germany, Hungary, Scotland, Denmark, Russia, and Sweden. The Chamber Orchestra of Lapland was founded in 1972. Its march toward international prominence began with the appointment of conductor and violinist John Storgårds as music director in 1996; a native of Helsinki, Storgårds moved with his family to Rovaniemi and has remained in the post of music director since his appointment, even while accepting posts with larger orchestras. Under Storgårds, the orchestra has become a presence on the European festival scene, with appearances at the Carinthian Summer Festival in Austria, the international Festival Culturel de Musique Symphonique in Algeria, and the BBC Proms Festival in London, among others. Most notable has been the orchestra's recording catalog, far more extensive than those of other small European regional orchestras. Beginning in 2002 with an album of music by Astor Piazzolla, the orchestra has recorded for such prestigious northern European labels as Alba, Dacapo, OUR Recordings, Ondine, and, since 2017, BIS, which released the orchestra's reading of the Clarinet Concerto and Seven Songs by Swedish composer Lars Karlsson in 2018. Several of the orchestra's recordings have received major prizes or prize nominations; their recording of Kalevi Aho's concertos for theremin and horn won Germany's ECHO Klassik award in 2015, and a recording of the chamber symphonies of Danish composer Vagn Holmboe was nominated for a Gramophone award.
