Fröst has been named as Chief Conductor of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra for a three year term from the beginning of the 2019/20 season. The appointment will open up yet another window to Fröst’s creativity.
Commenting on the announcement Martin Fröst said “The Swedish Chamber Orchestra is one of Scandinavia’s leading orchestras; their passion, dedication and creativity is an inspiration. I can’t wait to join the journey and have the chance to contribute to their already wonderful reputation both nationally and internationally and have the opportunity to develop a new framework and vision for the orchestra, together with the musicians. I have tried to open new doors into the future and this really gives me a chance to take another step in a new direction. It really is an honour to be joining this wonderful musical family.”
Fröst will join the orchestra as a guest conductor in September 2017 when he conducts Beethoven Symphony No.4. More news on the announcement can be found here.
