Since 2016, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra (RSPO) offers one year of training on site at Konserthuset Stockholm. The RSPO Orchestra Academy aims to give participating musicians heightened knowledge and understanding of the profession by giving them the possibility to work with – and alongside – one of Europe’s leading symphony orchestras. The young musicians receive individual tuition on their instrument by tutors that are predominantly leaders and principals of the orchestra.
In addition, extensive chamber music playing is a vital part of the course. In this case by joining the Composer Weekend – a five day festival featuring music by Swedish composer Tobias Broström. The programme includes two pieces for winds by Broström, and one piece – Crimson Skies – for chamber orchestra, where students from the Royal College of Music join in. Between these we also hear György Ligeti’s early first string quartet.
