Tobias Broström was born in 1978 in Helsingborg, Sweden. Following four years of percussion studies at the Malmö Academy of Music, he embarked on the pursuit of a Master’s degree in composition, studying with the Swedish composer Rolf Martinsson and the Italian composer Luca Francesconi.


Broström has composed music for dance, chamber opera and various chamber music, but during the last years he has mainly focused on orchestral writing in works such as La Danse, Transit Underground, Crimson Skies, Crimson Seas, Kaléidoscope, Violin Concerto, Arena – Percussion Concerto No. 1, Piano Concerto – Belle Epoque, Samsara and Lucernaris – Concerto for Trumpet, Live Electronics & Orchestra, which was composed for Håkan Hardenberger. Numerous soloists, conductors, ensembles and orchestras, including Robin Ticciati, Michael Sanderling, Anna Larsson, Karen Gomyo, Colin Currie, Dima Slobodeniouk, Johannes Gustavsson, Thomas Søndergård, Andrew Manze, Per Tengstrand, Mats Rondin, Tõnu Kaljuste, Simon Preston, Johan Bridger, Hugo Ticciati, Jaime Martín, Dresdner Philharmonie, BBC Philharmonic, Estonian National Orchestra, Komische Oper Berlin, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Gävle SO, Helsingborg SO, Trondheim SO, Malmö SO, Sinfonieorchester St. Gallen, Vogtland Philharmonie, Oviedo SO, the Symphony Orchestra of Norrlandsoperan, Aurora Chamber Orchestra, Penisula Festival Orchestra, Radio Television of Serbia Symphony Orchestra, Northwestern University Chamber Orchestra, Musica Vitae, Third Coast Percussion Quartet, Malleus Incus, Gageego, Esclats Percussion Quartet and BIT20 have performed his works.

Between 2006 – 2009 Tobias was Composer-in-Residence with the Gävle Symphony Orchestra under principal conductor Robin Ticciati, resulting in two new orchestral works each year. Two of these, Crimson Seas & Lucernaris were selected by Swedish Radio to represent Sweden in the European Broadcasting Union’s International Rostrum of Composers in 2007 & 2009. In autumn 2008 his Arena – Solo Version was picked out to be performed at the 52nd International Festival of Contemporary Music at the Venice Biennale and his orchestral piece Transit Underground was nominated for best orchestral piece of the year by Swedish Music Publishers’ Association.

Programme Notes / Performance Details :

The trio Bridging the World is based on the grand Chaconne by J.S. Bach from the solo violin partita in d minor. The Chaconne is a work with great personal significance for me, which is why I took the liberty to borrow from it. Bridging the World was commissioned by Rotary International to their centennial celebration and was premiered in 2005 at Malmö Concert Hall on a convention named as the piece. Premiered by Johan Bridger, Patrick Raab & Tobias Broström
