Home of the Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, this is the principal place to hear classical music in Sweden. The Nobel Prizes are awarded here. Constructed in 1920, the hall seats 1,600 and is best suited to major orchestras. Besides local orchestras, the hall features visiting ensembles, such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Recorded using 4 DPA 4006 omnidirectional microphones and a Genelec 1032 monitor to play back the sweeps.
