Malin Broman

Violin/Viola/Baroque Violin

Malin Broman is highly sought after as a soloist, artistic director, chamber musician, teacher, and orchestra leader. Malin was born in Kungsbacka and began playing the violin at the age of five. She studied with Lisbeth Vecchi and Milan Vitek before winning a scholarship to study with David Takeno at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

Early in her career, Malin was a prizewinner in several competitions, including the Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition in Denmark. At the Washington International Competition for Strings, she won both the first prize and the audience prize. Since then, Malin has built a successful solo career. Highlights include performances with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Copenhagen Phil, BBC Scottish Symphony, Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields, and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. She has worked with conductors such as Neeme Järvi, Andrew Manze, and Daniel Harding. As a chamber musician, Malin is a founder and member of the Kungsbacka Piano Trio, which was selected for both the BBC New Generation Artists Scheme and the European Concert Halls Organization.

With her partner Simon Crawford-Phillips, she regularly performs as a duo. Most recently, she co-founded the Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble, a group aimed at redefining the concert experience and consisting of some of Europe’s most brilliant chamber musicians. The ensemble has its own series at ‘Musikaliska’ in Stockholm, and in 2014, a documentary was made about the group for SVT.
