ON THIS DAY | Today is Conductor Herbert Blomstedt’s 94th Birthday!

Blomstedt has served principal conducting positions at numerous orchestras around the world and still remains active on the podium today

Swedish-born conductor Herbert Blomstedt was born on this day 94 years ago.

He has served principal positions with the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic, Danish Radio Symphony, Swedish Radio Symphony, Dresdner Staatskapelle, San Francisco Symphony, North German Radio Symphony, Leipzig Gewandhausorchester, Bamberg Symphony, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.

Blomstedt is particularly known for his interpretations of Austro-Germanic and Scandinavian repertoire — from Beethoven and Bruckner to Grieg and Nielsen.

Later this summer, in August 2021, Blomstedt will conduct the Boston Symphony Orchestra in an all-Beethoven program.
