Malin Broman is a violinist much in demand as a soloist, artistic director, chamber musician, teacher and orchestral leader.

Early in her career, Malin was a prizewinner at numerous competitions including in the Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition in Odense, Denmark. At the Washington International Competition for Strings, she gained both First Prize and the Audience Prize and the performance that won her third prize in the European Broadcasting Union Competition for Young Musicians was televised live throughout Europe.

Malin has since forged a successful career as a soloist. Highlights of her solo career include performances with the Gothenburg Symphony, Copenhagen Philharmonic, BBC Scottish Symphony, Academy of St Martin-in-the Fields and the Swedish Radio Orchestra, working with such conductors as Neeme Järvi and Daniel Harding.

Recent concerto appearances include performances with Gävle Symphony Orchestra, Västeras Sinfonietta, Värmlandsoperans Sinfonietta and Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra.

Devoted to chamber music, Malin is a founding member of the Kungsbacka Piano Trio, which was selected for both the BBC New Generation Artists Scheme and the European Concert Halls Organizations Rising Stars programme. The trio has made its Carnegie Hall debut and appeared at major venues, including the Concertgebouw, Vienna Konzerthaus, Cologne Philharmonie, Berlin Philharmonie, Schleswig-Holstein and Schwetzinger Festspiele, with residencies at Lofoten and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern festivals, and tours of Argentina, Uruguay, Australia, New Zealand & Canada.

In Stockholm she recently co-founded 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 and a documentary was recently made of the group by Swedish Television SVT.

Combining her unique talents as both a soloist and chamber musician, Malin was appointed leader of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra in 2008. As guest leader, she has since been invited to perform with the London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

Committed to passing on her expertise to future generations, Malin has served as 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 Professor of Viola at Edsberg Institute of Music in Stockholm.

In 2002 Malin was presented with the Halland Academy's Award for Outstanding Cultural Achievement, and in 2008, she was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music.
