By: FSWL team
James Bond konsert Berwaldhallen Stockholm
The Swedish Army Band will offer music from the James Bond films in Berwaldhallen in Stockholm on 19th February 2023. Presenter and singer for will be the incredibly versatile artist and actress Shima Niavarami. The concert will be conducted by Jonas Nydesjö.

One of the reasons for the film series' immense success is the music that has been created and performed by our planet's largest and most popular artists and composers.

There will be everything from the well-known theme songs to less often heard music from the series. A selection from beginning to end including scores from, among others, Goldfinger (1964), On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969), Live and Let Die (1973), The Living Daylights (1987), GoldenEye (1995), Casino Royale (2006), and Skyfall (2012).

About The Swedish Army Band:

The Swedish Army Band is a full-sized symphonic orchestra consisting of 53 full-time musicians (FSWL reader Rickard Stråhle is one of the full-time employees). The orchestra is one of the Swedish Armed Forces three professional music choirs and belongs to Livgardet in Stockholm. The Army Music Choir makes both concerts and parades, and has a figurative show program that is an appreciated and spectacular part of their performances.

The main mission for The Swedish Army Band is to provide the Armed Forces, the Swedish Royal Court (the people who work for the Royal House) and the government with music at ceremonies and solemn occasions. In addition, the music choir does concerts and parades that are open to the public.

Every year, the band makes about 200 performances, mainly in Stockholm, but also nationally and internationally. The music choir has played on the Armed Forces' missions in Kosovo and Afghanistan, and participated in Tattooer and music festivals around the world.

The varying assignments conducted by The Swedish Army Band require a great musical breadth and flexibility, both genre and ensemble. The band plays a repertoire that spans four centuries, and can, thanks to its size, occupy and perform everything from the largest works to chamber musical compositions.

Historically, The Swedish Army Band has a long military musical tradition to look at, while developing military music and bring it into the future. This combination of nurturing, carrying, and developing a legacy and tradition is a task that requires knowledge and openness. With curiosity and power, the army band takes responsibility for the inheritance, contemporary and the future.

Editor's note:
In 2023, James Bond celebrates its 70th anniversary since the first James Bond novel, Casino Royale by Ian Fleming, was published on April 13, 1953.

Tickets for next year's James Bond concert with The Swedish Army Band will be released on 20th December 2022 and can be ordered directly from Berwaldhallen.
