For the third time, SON receives a Grammis nomination for a recording of Allan Pettersson's music - this time Symphony No. 14.

15 December 2017

The gods of awards look benevolently down on the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, conductor Christian Lindberg and Allan Pettersson project. In 2015, the orchestra received a Grammis for the recording of Petterson’s Symphony No. 9. In 2016 Symphony No. 13 was nominated. And now it’s time again. At a press conference at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm on Friday, it was announced that the BIS recording of the Allan Pettersson’s symphony No. 14 with Norrköping SO and conductor Christian Lindberg is nominated for the classical Grammis in 2018.

International attention

The Allan Pettersson project continues to attract attention, both nationally and internationally. The newly established Allan Award was handed to the project this year. The prize is awarded by the Swedish Allan Pettersson Society to persons or projects that promote and spread the interest in Allan Pettersson’s music.

The recording of Symphony No. 13 was nominated for the Chritics Choice 2016 by the well-known music critic Allen Gimbel in the American Record Guide. Symphony No. 14 has received high scores of, amongst others, the French music site Crescendo Magazine, who calls the symphony “a cast of anxiety”.

On tour with Pettersson

June 10, 2018, the Norrköping SO and conductor Christian Lindberg is on tour with Allan Pettersson’s powerful Symphony No. 7, to Musikverein in Vienna.

The project to release Allan Pettersson’s symphonies and other works in a cd-box 2019 is a collaboration between Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, conductor Christian Lindberg and the record company BIS.

The project includes annual concerts and recordings.
