Anna is a violinist and composer who specialises in multi-tracked violin.
Anna is a violinist and composer in her early twenties, based in Birmingham, UK. Beginning her violin studies at age 7 in Stockholm, Sweden, Anna soon joined youth orchestras and moved on to study piano, music theory and viola. In 2009, Anna was the only successful violin applicant to gain a place at Södra Latin's Upper Secondary School's special music course (rated the best in the country). Anna has from then on led various youth orchestras and chamber ensembles, going on to tour in Finland and Germany. In 2012 she performed the Wieniawski violin concerto with Södra Latin's Symphony Orchestra and performed Borodin's String Quartet no 2 to Nobel Prize winner in Literature, Thomas Tranströmmer. The same year she was offered a place at Birmingham Conservatoire, where she studied with professor Pavel Fischer. In 2014 Anna spent an exchange semester at Kunstuniversität Graz, Austria, where she studied with leading international soloist and professor Silvia Marcovici. Besides classical violin studies, Anna formed a band with guitar and cajon. Together, they played covers of songs of many different genres, and regularly performed at cafes and jam nights in Graz. In January 2015 they were invited to perform at a concert in Klokocov, Czech Republic. Born in Sweden and with roots in south-east Asia, Anna enjoys exploring different cultures and musical styles and constantly incorporates new elements into her music. As her final year major project, Anna released her first album, 'Crossing Lines', consisting of 9 pieces for multi-tracked violin. Anna strongly believes that improvisation is the foundation of all music making, and is currently exploring new approaches to combine electronics, improvisation and visual arts. Anna is currently studying MMus in composition at Birmingham Conservatoire.
