Malin Broman

chamber musician

Malin is 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 and Wigmore Live, 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 also collaborates regularly with the Elias String Quartet. As part of their Beethoven cycle they recorded the quintet for Wigmore live-label. Their BBC recording of quintets by Mendelssohn and Mozart was chosen as Disc of the Month for BBC Music Magazine.

With her partner Simon Crawford-Phillips she performs regularly as a duo. The coming season see them perform sonatas for violin/viola and piano by Brahms, Bach, Hindemith and Schumann. They have recorded music by Fauré and Pärt for Naxos and soon Mendelssohn's Double Concerto will be released on DB.

Most recently, she co-founded the Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble (see photograph above), 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.
