During the artistic leadership of conductor Jerker Johansson from 1990-2005 and Alexander Hanson 2005-2012 the orchestra completed a numerous amount of recordings for which the orchestra has been awarded both gold and platinum records. The orchestra is today recognized as one of the most foremost wind ensembles in the world and is continuously developing its unique profile with a broad repertoire. They have commissioned numerous works written by contemporary composers, collaborations that has given the orchestra great possibility to expand and develop the repertoire for wind ensemble.
