Malin Broman

In 2008, Malin Broman was appointed concert-master of the Swedish Radio Orchestra and combines this with her international career as a soloist, chamber musician and teacher. Since taking up her position in Stockholm, she has been invited as a guest leader by both the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Mahler Chamber Orchestra.

Concerto appearances in 2012-13 include performances with Gävle Symphony Orchestra, Västeras Sinfonietta, Värmlandsoperans Sinfonietta and Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra. Abroad, she has performed as a soloist with orchestras including the Copenhagen Philharmonic, BBC Scottish Symphony and Academy of St Martin-in-the Fields and worked with conductors Heinrich Schiff, Paul Daniel, Ilan Volkov, Andrew Manze and Naeme Järvi. In 2010, she was invited to direct the Swedish Radio Orchestra and has returned to lead projects in 2012 and 2013. In 2011, she performed Brahms Double Concerto with Stephen Isserlis and conductor Daniel Harding.

A prizewinner at the 1994 Eurovision Broadcasting Union Competition in Warsaw and Washington International Competition for Strings in the USA, she went on to take Second Prize in the 1996 Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition in Denmark. In 1999, she completed her Advanced Instrumental Studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London having won a scholarship to study with David Takeno and in 2001, she graduated with a Masters Degree in Chamber Music.

She remains a hugely passionate chamber musician. As a founding member of the Kungsbacka Piano Trio, which was selected for the BBC New Generation Artists Scheme, she made her Carnegie Hall debut and toured the major European Concert Halls, including the Concertgebouw, Vienna Konzerthaus, Cologne Philharmonie, Berlin Philharmonie and Wigmore Hall. Residencies and appearances at festivals followed, including Schleswig-Holstein, Schwetzinger, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Obertsdorf, Lockenhaus and Lofoten, as well as tours to Argentina, Uruguay, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. The trio has recorded for Naxos and BIS.

From 2004-2010, she was a member of the Nash Ensemble and made her debut at the BBC Proms. The ensemble toured extensively and enjoyed a residency at London’s Wigmore Hall. Together they made many recordings for Hyperion, amongst others, and broadcast regularly on BBC Radio 3.

Other highlights have included string quintets with the Leopold String Trio at the Edinburgh International Festival and as a violist at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall with the Belcea Quartet. As a violist, she has also collaborated with the Elias String Quartet on BBC Radio 3 and at Wigmore Hall.

Most recently, she co-founded the Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble, a group that aims to redefine the concert experience and is made up of some of Europe’s most brilliant chamber musicians. The ensemble has its own series at ‘Musikaliska’ in Stockholm.

Until 2007, she was a member of the teaching staff at the Gothenburg Academy of Music and Drama, where she placed particular emphasis on the ergonomics of string playing. Currently she is the Professor of Viola at the Edsberg Institute of Music in Stockholm.

She was presented in 2002 with the Halland Academy’s Award for Outstanding Cultural Achievement and in 2008 was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music.
