Malin Broman

soloist & commissions

  • Since winning the Washington International Competition for Strings and major prizes in the Nielsen International Violin Competition and Eurovision Broadcasting Competition, Malin has maintained a busy career as a soloist. 

    She made her debut with Neeme Järvi and Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra in Brahms’ Violin Concerto. “The ovations were enormous and one starts to wonder if we have ever heard a Swedish violinist on this level in Gothenburg Concert Hall before” (Gothenburg Post 7 August 1997). This led to an immediate re-invitation to perform Prokofiev's Second Concerto. 

    Since then she has performed with many of the Nordic and UK orchestras including BBC Scottish Symphony, St.Martin-in-the-Fields, BBC NOW, working with conductors such as Thomas Dausgaard, Andrew Manze, Simon Crawford-Phillips and Alan Gilbert.

    Shortly after her appointment as concertmaster of the Swedish Radio Orchestra in 2008 she performed Brahms’ Double Concerto with Steven Isserlis under the baton of Daniel Harding. 

    In 2013 she recorded Piazzolla’s ’Four Seasons’ for Channel Classics together with double bass player Rick Stotijn. In 2015 she recorded Nielsen’s Violin Concerto garnering rave reviews and 2016 saw Malin perform the world premiere of two violin concerti written especially for her; Britta Byström’s concerto Games of Souls with Musica Vitae Chamber Orchestra (also recorded for CD) and Helen Grime’s Concerto with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Daniel Harding. Her recording of Mendelssohn double concerto with Simon Crawford-Phillips in 2019 was nominated for a Grammy. 

    Malin enjoys directing from the violin and performing concerti with all the orchestras she visits, Tapiola Sinfonietta, Norwegian Chamber Orchestra and Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra to name a few. Her performance of Brahms’ violin concerto with Helsingborg was recorded for Swedish Radio P2.
